The family of Nii Kweku Bibini II, the murdered Chief of Oblogo near Weija in Accra have expressed disappointment over the delay on the part of the Attorney General’s Office and the Ghana Police Service to ensure that justice is delivered in memory of the late chief and the family in general.

Speaking as spokespersons for the family, Nii Kofi Baah II, and Nii Ashaley Nkpa,Oblogo and Ngleshie MaCcarty Hill Chiefs respectively, told the media that the court informed the family that the prosecution had referred the docket of the case to the Attorney General’s office for advice and that the case has been moved from the Adjabeng Magistrate Court to the High Court. 

But several months since the announcement no information has been communicated to the family so they don’t know when they are going to court again.

Nii Mei expressed the family’s sadness at the delay, saying over eight years since their “father” was gruesomely murdered justice is yet to be served.

The family is appealing to the Attorney General’s office and the court to hasten the process without further delay.

“We are demanding for justice for our murdered relative”. They stated.

The family has also charged the police to arrest one Amuda Mohammed alias Lizard, one of the

person’s suspected to have taken part in the murder of Nii Kweku Bibini II, who  has once again

surfaced and operating at Gbawe, an Accra suburb years after going  into hiding.

According to the family,the Ghana Police Service which declared Amuda Mohammed and other 10 individuals wanted has failed to arrest the suspect in clear violation of its own rules.

Amuda Mohammed is walking  a free man while the security agencies which declared him wanted has for whatever reason failed to do the needful after several complaints by the family of the murdered Chief to the police about his (Amuda Mohammed’s) return to the community.    They are tempted to believe that news making rounds that the people of Gbawe who claim they’ve bribed the security agencies to let them go Scot free might be true.                                 The spokespersons alleged that they believe that the attempted assassination attempt on the life of the Weija Asafoatse, Nii Ayi Pampamku was the handiwork of Amuda and others from Sempe and Gbawe.                              

BACKGROUND

Hell broke loose on Easter Sunday April 8, 2012, when Nii Kwaku Bibini II, who had been in a

protective custody after his palace was gutted by fire set by arsonists, resurfaced at Oblogo with

the intention of rehabilitating his palace to resettle as a ruler of Oblogo.

A rival faction which opposed his entry into the town quickly besieged his palace to quiz him on

his mission, as he had been declared a persona non grata in the area following a court order which was later over-ruled by another Court.

In the ensuing warlike situation, Nii Bibini’s men were overpowered by his rivals, causing a pandemonium in the area, with everyone running helter-skelter for their lives.

Nii was unlucky as his men fled, leaving him to his fate while the enemies closed in on him.

The chief suffered a gunshot wound in his left armpit before being clubbed and axed with a Cutlass by his assassins. Evidence also showed that the assassins also hammered a nail into his

 head.  It could be recalled that in the Friday June 29, 2012, edition of the Ghanaian Times newspaper (page 3), it carried a story with the headline Oblogo Chief Murder: 10 wanted.

The story as given to the newspaper by the police service mentioned names and backed it with pictures of some of the wanted persons which included Amuda Mohammed.

According to the family, the murder of Nii Kweku Bibini has not been treated with much seriousness almost nine (9)years after the incident. They are therefore calling on the security agencies to up their game before something terrible happens again.

Those currently in court include the following Isaac Okaine, Nii Tei alias Pashie, Mudq  Salifu, Awal Mohammed, Tawiah alias Owuo, Nanor, Sammy Lorjor, Otokunor Sackey, Joshua Agnenyor, Laryea aka hot cake and two others.
