There was drama in court on Tuesday, October 3, 2023, when the family of murdered 35-year-old Princess Afia Ahenkan sighted the key suspect in a police vehicle.
They rushed toward the vehicle and threw punches in the direction of John Alister, who was being carried away at the back of a police pickup.
Others threw stones in the direction of the moving vehicle carrying 22-year-old Alister.
At some point, police had to intervene as some family members attempted to climb onto the slow-moving vehicle to beat the young man suspected to be the mastermind of the gruesome murder of the businesswoman.
The 35-year-old businesswoman was first assaulted with a blunt object by her young househelp who had just started working for under two weeks before stabbing her in the abdomen.
He then made away with the businesswoman's SUV and other items, but an intelligence-led police investigation led to his arrest along with other accomplices.
When he was arrested, he confessed to the crime.
On Tuesday, the family members, visibly angry, attempted to assault the suspects while they were being escorted out of the premises.
Some of the family members who spoke in Twi to the media said the adjournment of the case to a later date was unfortunate because justice must be delivered expeditiously.
