Oweyesigyire adds that the CCTV shows that Odwono also never stopped at that but went ahead and stole two mobile phones belonging to the deceased.
By the time of Ofwonos arrest, he had already sold one phone at 250,000 shillings according to Oweyesigyire.
He states that during the search, the detectives recovered Sim cards belonging to the deceased at the suspect’s home, they also recovered the clothes he was wearing during the murder and aggravated robbery.
Oweyesigyire says police have done better part of the investigation and the case file will be forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecutions for perusal and sanctioning.
He concludes by commending the officers at Kira Road Police for the efforts they put in to apprehend the suspect.
