The Police has dispatched a team to retrieve items used in murdering and stolen from Law lecturer Professor Yaw Benneh after the main suspect James Nana Womba, made a new confession today Friday 2nd October.

The suspect, confessed he had another accomplice and that they had gone to the scene to rob the professor, but he resisted and so they hit him with an iron rod.

At a news briefing in Accra, Director of CID,COP Ken Yeboah, said the suspects made away with a CPU, two phones and 450 cedis in the professors wallet

About two days ago a cleaner at the late professors house is said to have confessed his involvement in the murder of Professor Emmanuel Yaw Benneh. According to the police CID, it was based on this that the police called a news conference to update the media with details of his confession.

But just as the meeting was about to start, the Director General of Police CID, COP Isaac Ken Yeboah, announced, James had made another confession this morning which was at variance with his earlier confession.

He said James admitted to being the mastermind behind the act and named another person adding that the police had dispatched a team to retrieve the items used for the murder.

A question was asked about revelations that Professor Benneh was writing a book which had earned him some threats, a situation which may have led to the suspects going away with the CPU of his computer. Although the CID admitted to having knowledge about this, it said it can’t be substantiated now, per investigations.

On the new person mentioned by the suspect, COP Ken Yeboah said, investigations are still on-going for details.
