Details are emerging about the possible murder of Prof Emmanuel Yaw Benneh, a senior lecturer of Law at the University of Ghana.
He is said to have been killed at his home in Accra.
While details of his death and possible murder are sketchy at this moment, his colleague at the Faculty, Poku Adusei, has given a chilling account of the Professor’s death.
Poku Adusei in a Facebook post on Saturday, September 12, 2020, said the respected Law Professor was “murdered” in the same fashion as the late Abuakwa North MP, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu.
“It appears to be an act perpetuated about three days ago, but it was just discovered this morning,” he said of the unfortunate incident at late Prof Benneh’s Adjirigano mansion.
Unconfirmed reports suggest he was found in a pool of blood with his hands and legs tied.
According to theghanareport.com’s Manasseh Azure Awuni who visited the house on Saturday, a sister of the deceased was wailing uncontrollably.
However, one Isaac Botchway, who said he was the late law professor’s houseboy said the last time he spoke to him was on Thursday at about 8 pm.
It is with a heavy heart, that we inform you about the demise of one of our lecturers, Prof. Emmanuel Y. Benneh.
A call to the dean confirmed the news; but we are yet to have details on the occurrence of his unfortunate demise.
May his soul rest in perfect peace. pic.twitter.com/J908EOTttZ
