The Ashanti Regional Police Command of the Ghana Police Service is investigating the alleged murder of the wife of an aide to Dr. KK Sarpong, the Chief Executive Officer of Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), Nana Prempeh.
Benedicta Abena Pokua was shot dead Saturday evening by unknown assailants while driving at the forecourt of Joefel Restaurant at Dichemso, a suburb of Kumasi.
Recounting the incident on Akoma FM‘s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma on Monday, June 14, husband Nana Prempeh told the host of the show Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin that “while on our way from Joefel Restaurant, my wife was driving my white Range Rover with a customized registration number PREMPEH 1- 21”.
“She was driving ahead of me while I was in a different car. All I saw was someone had rushed her and opened gunfire at her. They shot multiple times and sped off.”
Nana Prempeh in a sobbing voice explained that he is convinced the armed men were coming for him but little did they know he had swapped cars with his wife.
Police are tight-lipped on the issue as it is yet to go public.
The assailants are still at large as the investigation is underway to unravel the killers of Abena Pokua.
