Two individuals suspected of the murder of Afia Ahenkan in the Ashanti Region made their appearance today before the Asokore Mampong District Court. This grim incident harks back to a tragic occurrence that unfolded in Kumasi on September 11, 2023. It was on that fateful day that Afia Ahenkan, a businesswoman, met her untimely demise at the hands of her recently hired house boy, Alister John, a known criminal with a history of wrongdoing. After committing this heinous act, John hastily fled the scene, making off with the victim’s car.
John’s connection to Afia Ahenkan was rather brief, as he had been employed as a houseboy by the victim for a mere two weeks before this shocking incident took place. The allegations against him are grave, suggesting that he not only ended the life of his employer but also absconded with her vehicle. Subsequently, law enforcement authorities managed to apprehend him, along with an accomplice who may have played a role in this tragic event. The legal proceedings now stand before the Asokore Mampong District Court, where justice will seek to unravel the intricacies of this heart-wrenching case.
