It is known that when things happen, those close to us may or may not have an idea of what exactly happened to you.
The case is not different from that of the murder of the late law professor at the University of Ghana, Professor Yaw Benneh, who was gruesomely murdered in his house.
A cleaner, James Nana Womba, who happens to work with the late professor, has confessed that he played a part in the murder of the professor.
According to a report filed by Joy News, state prosecutors said two other people are said to have been named as his accomplices.
State prosecutors on September 16 pressed the charge of murder against four persons namely Christian Pobee, James Nana Womba, Isaac Botchwey, and Adams Mensah Mansur.
But the state, today, dropped the case against Isaac Botchwey, Christian Pobee and Adams Mensah.
One Opambour Agya Badu, who prosecutors describe as a named accomplice of Mr. Womba, has since been arrested and charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported Professor Emmanuel Yaw Benneh, has been murdered.
In a reported sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com has it that the popular professor was killed in his home in a rather gruesome manner.
A colleague of the lecturer, Dr. Poku Adusei, took to his Facebook page to break the news of the lecturer's unfortunate demise.
Professor Benneh's hands and legs were all tied in a pool of blood between his bedroom and living room.
Ghanaians have reacted differently to the news.
Kingsford Animah described it as a disturbing confession.
A pitiful and disturbing confession of a heinous crime committed. No one should have to exit life in this cruel manner. Now, I hope the prosecutors and state security can pursue this case to the very end. Something is yet to be revealed!
Piero Prospero said he hopes the police will follow this to the end.
Ghana policefuo nunu they will arrest you, take pictures of you and parade you as a culprit but later disappear in court for lack of evidence. I hope they will follow this to the end.
