Four teenagers suspected to be attackers of George Somuah Bosompem, the headmaster of the Salvation Army Basic School at Asiakwa in the Eastern Region, who died on May 3, have been remanded in Police custody.
Two others are currently on the run.
The Daily Graphic reported that the four; Richard Anani, Emmanuel Mireku, Philip Okodie and Paul Boadu, were charged with conspiracy to commit murder and murder at a court hearing on Tuesday.
They have been remanded into police custody by the Kibi district magistrate court and are to reappear on May 14, 2019
George Somuah Bosompem died at the St. Joseph’s Hospital at Koforidua where he was rushed to after the attack.
He was initially admitted at the Kibi Hospital but later transferred to the St. Joseph’s Hospital.
He is survived by a wife and three children.
According to the Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh, initial investigations by the police showed that late George Somuah Bosompem incurred the wrath of the six teenagers, aged between 18 and 19 after he threatened to report them to the Police for stealing his farm produce, among other things.
“Apparently, a threat from Bossompem that he was going to inform the police to arrest those invading his backyard infuriated the young men who, according to the police, accosted him in the vicinity, landing an assault on him to an early grave,” the Daily Graphic noted.
