Madwoa’s Killer Arrested: Police Find Inspector Who Killed His Girlfriend At A Hideout In Sekyere

The Ghana Police Service has announced that a special operation led to the arrest of a police inspector who shot his girlfriend multiple times on Thursday, April 20, 2023, leading to her death.

Inspector Ahmed Twumasi went into hiding after the incident said to have been triggered by a decision by his girlfriend Victoria Dapaa, aka Madwoa, to leave him for another man.

Reports indicate that although Ahmed Twumasi was married, he was deeply in love with Madwoa and did not want her to leave him.

Inspector Twumasi went into hiding after the incident, prompting law enforcement agents to launch a manhunt for him. But after being in hiding for 48 hours, police say they arrested him after a special operation.

The police officer, nicknamed “Tycoon” was stationed at the Manhyia Palace as one of the dedicated palace security. Manyhia Palace is the seat of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

However, his unit is the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) of the Ashanti Region police command.

The CCTV footage that captured the final moments before Madwoa was shot dead shows Inspector Twumasi giving her a kiss before shooting her five times.

Family members say Madwoa had another boyfriend and had decided to end the relationship with the police officer, a decision that infuriated the policeman and triggered the fatal shooting.

Police say he will soon be put before the court to face justice.
