A man, suspected of being behind the recent murders within the Tema

Metropolis and its environs, has been arrested by the Tema Regional

Police Command.

The 36-year-old man, Ernest Away alias Mustapha Awaya, is believed to

The suspect, according to the Tema Regional Police Commander, DCOP

Beatrice Zakpaa Vib-Sanziri was arrested after more than a year's

search for him and his accomplice, Iddrisu Kenkensu alias Idi who is

currently on the run.

Briefing a cross-section of the media in Tema on Tuesday, November 11,

2014, DCOP Vib-Sanziri noted that after the death of Mr. Kofi Quist

Defour, an Immigration officer and a businessman identified as Samuel

Davis Ayibah, as well as some other residents of the Metropolis, fear

gripped most residents there.

She continued that the Command immediately began investigating the

deaths as it assured residents of police's continued efforts at

getting the perpetrators arrested.

According to her, intelligence gathered pointed to the fact that those

killings were committed by Ernest and his accomplice Idi.

Ernest Away is currently in police custody while efforts are being

intensified to arrest Iddrisu, she said.

Suspect Ernest, according to DCOP Vib-Sanziri, was the pillion rider

while Iddrisu was the main rider in perpetrating the killings.
