Aflao, Dec.03, GNA – Akadji Bakari Mohammed, a national of Benin and husband of Naomi Aseye Avevor, whose dead body was found alongside that of her son, Mawunyo, in her Laklevikope residence, near Denu, in the Ketu South Municipality, has been interrogated by the police.
Keta Divisional Police sources told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that Mohammed, 36, a car dealer, was quizzed at Aflao and then at the Volta Regional Police headquarters in Ho.
He had since been released on police inquiry bail and has since returned to Pokuase in Accra, from where he was invited by the police via his cellular phone number found in the deceased’s room.
The police was also said to have visited Mohammed’s Pokuase home, as part of investigation.
“We (Police) are still digging,” the source said
The bodies of Avevor, 35, a native of Keta and her son, Mawunyo, aged about four, were found in pools of blood on Friday morning November 22, this year by neighbours.
Avevor’s body was found on the compound of the rented premises and that of Mawunyo in a plastic bowl full of water in their chamber and hall apartment.
Multiple wounds were found on Avevor’s body and there were visible signs of some struggling.
The kitchen knife suspected to have been used in the act by the suspected assailant was found thrust into Avevor’s private parts.
The source said the mother and son were seen by neighbours before bedtime the evening before the incident.
He said the police and people suspected the act might have taken place early Friday dawn.
Police said Avevor and Mohammed lived together at Pokuase until she came down to give birth to Mawunyo.
She did not return and Mohammed had been paying monthly visits to Laklevikope.
