The Ghana Police Department has arrested Solomon Kwame Bwado at the racetrack, a suburb of Sotum in the Greater Accra region, for the murder of 73-year-old Kwesi Wevi.
The deceased was found in a pool of blood with multiple cuts to his head and pronounced dead at the police hospital.
The police arrested the suspect and found him hiding in the ceiling of the deceased’s room. This came after a report from an eyewitness who reported loud noises and screaming from the deceased’s house.
The eyewitness said the deceased was heard screaming for help from his room around 9:00 pm on June 28, 2021.
Police then searched the suspect’s home and recovered a handgun.
They commended the actions of the eyewitness and appealed to anyone with relevant information that would help determine the circumstances surrounding the killing, to provide the information to the police in Sowutuom or to call the police toll-free number 18555 or 191.
