Cop faces trial for alleged murder

Police Constable Dennis Aryee of the Akomadan Police who allegedly shot and killed a suspected illegal timber operator on the Nkenkensu-Akomadan road has been remanded into prison custody by the Offinso Court.
He was charged with the offence of murder when he was arraigned last Monday, December 3, 2007.
His plea was not taken and would re-appear on December 17, 2007. This is to enable the police conduct further investigations into the matter.
The Deputy Ashanti Regional Police Commander, ACP Seth Oteng confirmed this to the Daily Graphic.
Constable Aryee who fled his station after allegedly killing Yaw Agyen on a moving KIA cargo truck was picked up last Friday by the Police.
On Wednesday December 28, 2007, Constable Aryee was said to be on guard duty when the deceased and a group allegedly entered a teak plantation to fell teak.
While transporting the logs to Akomadan on a KIA cargo truck, Constable Aryee who was on guard duty at a construction company signaled the driver of the truck to stop but he refused.
The Policeman was said to have opened fire from his AK 47 rifle and hit Agyen, who was then sitting on top of the logs.
Agyen died on top of the vehicle but the driver sped off until he got to Akomadan where the body was brought down.
The constable went back to the police station to deposit his weapon and went into hiding, refusing to disclose the shooting incident.
The shooting incident subsequently resulted in a mob attack on the Akomadan Police station, with destruction to property.
