Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh reported in a previous story that Maadwoa was shot at least five times by Inspector Twumasi leading to his death not long after that.
The lady's father named only as Atakora said he has no knowledge of the suspect's relationship with his daughter.
According to him, there's only one man he knows was in Maadwoa's life, and he is a footballer, not a police inspector.
This has led many to suggest that the accused police inspector committed the crime because he felt cheated on by the lady.
