Mam Yandey Joof, said to be the girlfriend of Bennette Agyekum Adomah, owner of Kikibee’s Restaurant and Lounge, has been remanded into police custody by a Madina District Court.
Bennette Agyekum Adomah died last Sunday under circumstances yet to be unraveled by the police.
Mam Yandey Joof, whose Bennette Agyekum Adomah was found on Sunday dawn has provisionally been charged with murder.
Her plea has been reserved by the court presided over by Susana Nyakotey.
Muniru Kassim, the lawyer who represented the accused person, said she had no hand in the death of the Adomah, aka Kikibees and that at the right time, the truth would come out.
The accused person, a hotelier, is expected to reappear on October 27.
The prosecution, led by Inspector Jameson Awumey, said the deceased, popularly known as Kikibees and the accused person, had been in an amorous relationship allegedly for the past three years.
The prosecution said the deceased traveled overseas three months ago and returned to Ghana on October 7, 2023.
On his arrival, the prosecutor said Adomah at about 6:00 pm the same day went to his residence at East Legon and about two hours later, proceeded to his restaurant at East Legon.
The prosecution said on October 8, 2023, at about 12:30 am, Adomah left the restaurant to visit the accused person at her residence at Ogbjojo near Madina in Greater Accra.
The prosecutor said at about 1:30 am, Adomah started behaving strangely and throwing things in the room amidst shouts that some people were after him.
The shouts of the deceased woke some tenants in the house. The prosecution told the court that Joof then allegedly called a friend of the deceased to come to her residence and help her.
When the said friend arrived, he found the deceased lying in a pool of blood in the kitchen.
The prosecutor said some tenants in the house helped the accused and the deceased’s friend to take the deceased to the DEL Hospital at East Legon.
It said Adomah, however, died shortly on arrival. The prosecution said a report was made to the Police and the body was sent to the Police Hospital for preservation and autopsy.
At the scene, the prosecution said some pieces of broken ceramic glasses with blood stains were found at Joof’s apartment.
The prosecution said when the body was inspected, there was a cut on the deceased’s left thumb.
