- The suspect in the Commonwealth Hall killing incident has been arraigned before court
- The court has remanded him into police custody for four weeks
The Madina District Magistrate Court has remanded, into police custody, the suspect in the Old Vandal murder case.
The suspect, George Osei Mensah was arrested over the weekend after he allegedly stabbed another man death at the Commonwealth Hall of the University of Ghana.
George and the deceased, Martin Tweneboah Kodua, popularly known as Chief Tipsy, were reportedly engaged in a heated argument and he reacted badly after being slapped.
At the first hearing of the case on Tuesday, the court presided over His Lordship, Richard Delali Anku, remanded the him into police custody for four weeks.
The lengthy remand, YEN.com.gh gathered, is to give the police enough time to conclude investigations before the suspect reappears on January 9, 2018.
Within this period, it is expected that an expert will be hired to conduct an autopsy on the deceased after which the police will submit the suspects docket to the Attorney General for further advice on on how to proceed with the case.
Meanwhile, the University of Ghana has denied reports that the suspect is student of the school.
It had been widely reported that both the suspect and the deceased were students of the University
But according to the Vice Chancellor, per their records the suspect, has never been their student whether previously or currently.
