Isaac Kwasi Fosu, an unemployed middle-aged man, stunned an Accra Magistrate Court Thursday when he confessed to killing 17 people across the country for politicians.
According to Adom Online, even though the accused could not mention who his supposed politician clients were, he alleged that he was paid GH¢25,000 (about N1.3m) by his contracting partners for the killings.
He claimed that he carried out the gruesome act with four other people who are now on the run.
Fosu aka T O was arrested by the police on April 12 at Atibie Amanfrom in the Eastern Region after his cover was blown for allegedly murdering Kwaku Owiredu, a 15-year-old boy, in a cocoa farm at Abokyikrom near Nkawkaw.
The Holy Family Hospital at Nkawkaw has given the interim report on the cause of Owiredu’s death as hemorrhagic shock, sharp edged laceration of anterior and suspected assault.
The police are on the heels of the four other accomplices currently on the run. They are Kwame Alex, Yaw Ampofo, William Arthur and Yaa Pokua.
According to the prosecution, Fosu and the four others on November 29 last year at Abokyikrom intentionally caused the death of Kwaku by causing unlawful harm.
During his first appearance in the court presided over by Gloria Naa Botor Laryea, Isaac Kwasi Fosu was charged with conspiracy to murder and murder.
The magistrate accordingly remanded Fosu into police custody until June 18 to enable the police enough time to complete their investigations.
