A Nigerian, who is believed to have murdered Grace Poku, a house help of a white man and his Ghanaian wife at Ridge in Kumasi, has been arrested by the police.

The suspect, identified only as Emma, was arrested over the weekend from his hideout in Kumasi based on intelligence gathered by the Ashanti Regional Police Command.

Emma, who was said to be renting a room in the white man’s house and two Nigerians, one by name ‘Monday,’ were declared wanted by the police in connection with the murder of Grace Poku, 40.

DCOP Kofi Boakye earlier declared the three Nigerians wanted and promised to arrest the suspects, saying “they can run but they can’t hide.”

Emma was apprehended by the police at an undisclosed area in Kumasi over the weekend, the paper learnt.

DCOP Kofi Boakye, who declined to give full details about the arrest of Emma, said the police were on the heels of Monday and the other Nigerian over the murder of Grace on Friday, May, 23.

The police commander therefore entreated the public to provide the police with vital information that would lead to the arrest of the suspects to assist in investigations.

The body of Grace, a mother of three, was found with a towel filled with powdered pepper tied tightly around her face with her hands and legs also tied with a rope as she lay in a locked room.

Emma and his accomplices, who allegedly committed the heinous act, disappeared immediately after the incident on Friday, May, 23.

The Nigerians reportedly attacked the white man’s wife, Ama Kyere, 70.

Madam Ama Kyere, who sustained injuries, informed the Ridge Police that three Nigerians living in her husband’s house had attacked her violently.

The police rushed to the house but the Nigerians were nowhere to be found.

They later found the body of the deceased in the locked room of Emma.
