Update: Why Kumasi cop killed himself


Lance Corporal Ebenezer Kofi Okyere 35, with the SWAT unit of the Ghana Police Service in Kumasi last week Wednesday,  killed himself because he found out that he was not the father of a child he has with his fiancé, family sources revealed.

“He spent the night with the fiancé who comes there occasionally. So the lady received a call and entered the bedroom, but  he overheard her saying do you think that child I have is for your brother, he is sterile and cannot give birth”, the family disclosed.

After the call, the cop was reported to have asked her to leave, threatening to pull the trigger if she did not. The lady who took the threat seriously decided to report to the police, but before she could get some assistance, Lance Corporal Ebenezer Kofi Okyere had gunned himself down with an AK 47 assault rifle.

The body is currently at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue while police say they are investigating the matter.
