One of the four persons believed to have robbed and murdered the manager of the Abrepo Branch of Ecobank at Ahenema Kokoben in Kumasi a fortnight ago yesterday shocked the police and journalists when he re-enacted how the incident took place.
The suspect, Samuel Boadi, 20, was arrested by the Ashanti Regional Police Command last Monday.
The police have declared the remaining three robbers wanted and placed a bounty of GH˘5,000 on each of them.On December 5, 2014, four armed robbers killed the bank Manager, Mr Richard Sallah, after robbing him in his residence.
Boadi told the team, led by the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police Mr Nathan Kofi Boakye, that he and his three accomplices were all masked and armed with pistols and one pump action gun.
They also carried along with them a heavy duty metal cutter and a car jack which was used to break into Sallah’s house. Looking sad, Boadi, who is also known as Bafah, showed the police how he, together with Emmanuel Aseisu, Alex, popularly known as Topak, and Yaw, cut through the barbed wire outside.
According to Boadi, he was aided by the three others to scale the wall, entered the compound and hid himself among the flowers.
Later, when he realised that Sallah and his family were indoors, he beckoned the other three to enter the house. He said they used the car jack to widen the metals in the window in the living room to gain access to one of the rooms.
Boadi said from the room, he managed to open the main door from inside, where they met Sallah and at gunpoint they ordered him to show them where he kept his money.
Standing at the exact spot where Sallah had been shot, fear-stricken Boadi claimed that just as they were being led by Sallah to where the money was, the bank manager tried to remove the mask on Alex’s face, but Alex quickly responded by firing at Sallah, killing him instantly.
They then ransacked the rooms and made away with one Compaq laptop, a Tecno Phantom A+ mobile phone, one LCD TV set, three other phones and GH˘400.
Mr Boakye urged the public to volunteer information that would lead to the arrest of the remaining three suspects.
He, however, cautioned that the three were deadly and armed with guns and that “anyone harbouring these criminals must inform the police or harbour them at his or her own risk”.
