Zachariah Biimi Naandam, who is alleged to be the chief mastermind behind the death of Deputy Distribution Manager of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) in charge of Accra East Region has been arrested.
Police sources disclosed that the suspect is believed to have instigated the gruesome murder of Joseph Migal Jinjel on New Year’s Eve as preliminary investigations point to the fact that his pick-up vehicle was allegedly used for the said operation by the assailants of the deceased.
The suspect had earlier been picked with two others including one Kantam and Bukari who have both been released on bail after preliminary investigations suggested they were not in any way connected to the incident, MyNewsGh.com gathered.
Zachariah Biimi Naandam who is a development worker with a Non-Governmental Organisation has since been remanded into prison by a Tamale court to give police investigators ample time to conclude their investigations and forward the docket to the Attorney General’s Department for advice.
Mr. Joseph Migal Jinjel was a regular visitor to his hometown of Bunkpurugu and had actually played key roles in the mobilization of the youth as President of the Bimoba Youth Association in Accra prior to his death.
According to his family, Mr. Joseph Migal Jinjel together with his wife and others were attacked by alleged armed robbers at Langbinsi or its suburb.
While driving, he was stopped by the hoodlums in the night who after barricading the road with pieces of wood, pulled him out of his cross country vehicle and shot him to death after which they fled.
The family, earlier in an interaction, suspected contract killing considering the fact he was nursing an ambition to contest as National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Bunkpurugu Constituency while another school of thought linked it to a long-standing ethnic feud.
