Police Prosecutors handling the case of the murdered police woman, Sergeant, Agatha Nana Nabin, have revealed, she was shot in the neck and killed instantly by the gunmen.
According to Inspector Victor Kwafo, the gunmen quickly picked the deceased AK47 rifle No. A26639 loaded with 20 rounds of ammunition and snatched away another AK47 rifle No. 172280 with 20 rounds of ammunition from another female police officer.
He said the complainants immediately reported the incident to the Regional Police Command and some officers were dispatched to the scene.
He narrated that upon inspection of the scene, one spent shell of G3 rifle ammunition was found on a spot close to the deceased police woman.
On 31st July,2019, acting on intelligence, police arrested suspect, Issahaku Yakubu at his residence at Warizeri and a search in his room by the Police led to the retrieval of AK47 and G3 rifle and ammunitions, spent shells and assorted military uniforms and accoutrements.
Upon interrogation he mentioned Anas Issahaku as his accomplice and led the police to arrest Anas and one Zulika Abdallah.
A search in Anas Issahaku’s residence also revealed 2 locally manufactured guns and military accoutrements while at Zulika Abdallah residence, the police found 3 live AK47 ammunition, 6 G3 ammunition, 2 cartridges and 9 pellets.
The Tamale District Magistrate Court, presided over by Amadu Seidu, said delays from the Attorney General’s office were limiting the cause of justice hence he said he would seek official reasons for that since the case is of public interest.
He wants the AG’s office to provide its advice on the case on September, 19, 2019, which is the next adjourned date.
Before the ruling, Sylvester Isang, who is lawyer for Anas Issahaku and Zulika Abdallah, lamented about the delay in investigations by the prosecutors in the case.
He was of the view that the suspects have been kept in prison custody against their human rights and should be granted bail.
