A former Director-General of the Criminal Investigative Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, COP Bright Oduro has said the government should investigate the death of the lead suspect in the murder of Legon Law lecturer, Professor Yaw Benneh.
To him, more attention should have been paid to his health because he is the key suspect in the murder.
The lead suspect identified James Nana Womba as in the murder of Legon Law lecturer, Professor Yaw Benneh died at the Police Hospital in Accra on Saturday.
The Police informed that he had been sick for a while and has put on oxygen at the intensive care unit of the hospital but died after some time.
James Nana Womba had earlier admitted his role in the murder of the late law professor in his home at Adjiriganor, Accra. The cause of his death is yet to be known.
Speaking on Eyewitness News, COP Bright Oduro stated that the police should have paid keen attention to the suspect while he was in their custody.
He stated that a lot of questions needed to be asked and answered so that the issue can be fully understood and resolved.
“Considering how death was stated, I think the right channels have not been given. They said he fell unconscious while in custody; what time did he fall unconscious? All these matters must be investigated. He could have died of natural causes, from illness. In fact, we should investigate whether special attention was given to him when he was in custody.”
