On Friday, September 8, 2023, John Allister, the main suspect, is thought to have committed the crime in the Kumasi suburb of Sokoban. He is accused of stabbing Efia Ahenkan, also known as Princess Efia, who is the wife of Reverend Osei Kofi’s son and lives in London, United Kingdom.
Reports say Allister left the crime scene with the deceased’s car and several other belongings, including her phone, which he used to send messages to friends and close associates of the deceased while pretending to be her.
Sports broadcaster Dan Kwaku Yeboah revealed the fatal incident on September 14, 2023.
“The family of Reverend Osei Kofi is in deep sorrow now because the wife of his London-based son has been killed. The man wanted his wife to have the freedom to undertake her business activities so recruited a house help through an agency.
“The housekeeper’s name was John Allister, and he was being paid by the agency. She was talking to her buddy on Friday when the friend overheard her cry that she had been stabbed. The next day, the friend sent a police squad to the residence in Kumasi after the phone went dead and her number went off.
“When they arrived at the residence, they discovered that the dog inside had been let loose and that the woman’s body was laying in the garage. The housekeeper had driven the automobile out of the garage, according to Dan Kwaku Yeboah.
During the Evening News broadcast on Peace FM, Samson Kwame Nyamekye, the station’s Ashanti regional correspondent, reported the arrest on Thursday, 24th September,2023.
