The Wamfie District Police Commander DSP Francis Akwesi Asante has explained how they managed to arrest Farouk Adams.
Aduana Stars central defender Farouk Adams was arrested yesterday by Police for allegedly killing a police officer on a motobike.
According to reports, the officer obtained permission from his senior officer whom he was on duty with to go and get mosquito repellent but he was knocked down by former Elmina Sharks defender’s car
Explaining the incident on Hello FM in Kumasi, DSP Francis Akwesi Asante said, Farouk Adams run after the incident but they were assisted by someone’s Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV Camera) to trace him.
“About three days ago, one of our men, Constable Amos Mantey was on snap check duty with other colleagues at Asuotiano on the Berekum road. He sought permission to go to town to buy mosquito repellent with a motorbike at around 7 pm. While he was not returning around 10 pm, the other colleagues at the post made several phone calls to the office and some friends but he was not picking.”
“The next day (Tuesday), someone called to inform the police that there has been a motor accident but he does not know the person so his colleagues rushed to the place and found that it was their colleague who sought permission. He was lying in the bush without life.”
“We realised it was hit and run so we started an investigation. We saw that there was red paint on his motorbike so we suspected that the car involved was red.”
“Fortunately, for us, we got someone who had a CCTV camera that captured the car where it went and parked after the incident. We took the number of the car and checked from DVLA for the owner of the vehicle.”
“It led to one Adams Farouk who is a player of Aduana Stars Football Club. We went to Dormaa.”
“Because of what happened they took the vehicle to Sunyani to change the doors and other things but we were able to retrieve it. Currently, the car is in the custody of the police.” He said
Farouk Adams has been arranged for court today.
