Ghana Police Makes Headway In Ayogu’s Death Investigations
The parents of a Nigerian student killed in Ghana say they have been told that the police have made headway in the investigations of the suspected murder of their son.
The body of Godwin Ayogu, 19, a 300-level student of Cape Coast University, Ghana, was found on campus ground, disemboweled, and with stab wounds.
His mother, Mrs Lilian Ayogu, told Channels Television on Monday, that they were shocked when the Nigerian High Commission in Ghana, who has been working with the Ghanaian Police, told them that some suspects arrested by the police were Nigerians.
“Last week, the Nigerian Ambassador over there said that they have made some headway. He said that they got some guys and that the funniest part was that they are all Nigerians. Most of the guys they got were his friends.
“One person had earlier questioned why Godwin’s friends were on the run after his death,” she said.Mrs Ayogu said that she was told investigations were still ongoing.
After receiving several reports on the killing of Nigerians students abroad, the House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora, headed by Abike Dabiri- Erewa, said it would probe the killings.
The committee and another on Justice and Foreign Affairs were mandated to conduct a public hearing on the issue and submit their reports to the house.
