Kumi was killed on April 1, 2018, at Akyem Asuboa in the Eastern Region.

The suspects are Joseph Kwasi Effah otherwise known as Kwasi Tailor, Kwabena Akwaah, 45, and Kwasi Bosompem Mensah, 58.

They are all members of the local community watchdog committee, according to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Starrfm.com.gh.

Kwasi Tailor, the prime suspect, reportedly admitted to fatally shooting the late Aeronautic Engineer with his “locally made single barrel gun.”

Tailor told investigators that they mistook Kumi for a pig and shot him leading to his death.

They, however, abandoned the body when they realised that they killed a human being out of fear.

Prosecutors put the suspects before the Oda Magistrate Court on Tuesday, April 20, 2021. The court remanded them into police custody.

Kumi’s body was discovered with gunshot wounds after a search by his family. They had gone days without hearing from him.

An autopsy conducted on the body confirmed he was shot at close range.

In other news on YEN.com.gh, following the death of the 10-year-old who was murdered in cold blood by two teenagers at Ofaakor in Accra, state security decided to act to avert any future occurrence.

Police probe of the two teenagers revealed that they were incited to do that after they saw it being broadcast on television.

This revelation by the police sparked a lot of public outcry with calls for the appropriate quarters to clamp down on these stations that boldly advertise the act of spiritualism, money doubling, and money rituals.

Because of this, state security has clamped down on two TV stations; Thunder TV and Ice 1 TV, which belongs to spiritualist Patricia Asiedu, popularly known as Nana Agradaa.

Nana Agradaa is a self-styled Accra-based fetish priestess who has been a reference point on numerous fraudulent activities in the name of spiritualism.

Equipments at both TV stations were seized for operating without the necessary authorization.

The two media houses are the first amongst many on the state’s list of targeted raids to take place today.

According to a report filed by the Ghanareport, Nana Agradaa has swindled a lot of people under the pretext of doubling their money for them through her ‘Sika Gari’ ritual concept.
