The suspected killer in the Dzodze shooting incidence on Monday night has been arrested by the Police on Tuesday afternoon as he tries to commit suicide.
Supt. Christian Dogbatsey in conforming the arrest to AvenorTV’s Worlali Awumee, stated that the suspect was arrested in a bush at Damadi a community near Dzodze around 4:00pm with knife inflicted wounds on his throat.
Though he claimed he was attacked by some unknown persons who tried to kill him, the police believed he was rather trying to commit suicide allegedly.
Earlier in the day, Mr. Godwin Ayisu Migbloefa native of Ave-Dakpa and brother to the deceased confirmed to the media that; their sister Akos, was really dating the suspect but the two fell out long ago but he refuted that there has not been any reports of theft case as speculated by some people in the community.
He also said; their sister does not stay with Kwashivi anymore but only lodges in a guest house Anytime she goes to Dzodze.
“It is not true that our sister stole his money as people are claiming…so we don’t really know what actually caused that man to commit this heinous crime with her” Godwin fumed.
