According to the prosecutor, the suspect also failed to report the accident to the police but went and parked the accident vehicle at a Goil Filling Station and proceeded to the Wamfie Polyclinic for treatment without telling anyone about the incident.

Meanwhile, the police said, Adams arranged with a mechanic from Sunyani to pick the vehicle to an unknown place so that the police cannot trace it and afterwards went into hiding at Dormaa-Ahenkro.

About 7.00 am on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, police received an information that there was a hit-and-run incident and when they proceeded to the scene Constable Niganoka’s lifeless body was found.

According to the prosecutor, upon a tip-off, police went to the Goil Filling Station and through a CCTV surveillance, the vehicle which the accused was driving at the time of the incident was identified.

Further investigations were extended to the DVLA in Sunyani where it was revealed that the said vehicle was registered in the name of one Albert Asare of Dormaa-Ahenkro.

He was subsequently called and asked to produce the suspected driver and the mechanic to bring the car.

Accordingly, Adams was arrested and when an inspection was carried on the vehicle it was found that the road worthiness as well as insurance covering it had expired since June 13, 2018 while the rear number plate had also been removed.

He is expected to reappear before the court on Thursday, March 18, 2021 for the continuation of the case.

The court presided over by Mr Osei Kofi Amoako refused the bail application by counsel for the accused, Mr Baafour Akoto.
