In relation to the passing of Mr Eric Johnson, CEO of the Royal Cosy Hills Hotel in the Upper West Region—also known as “Jirapa Dubai”—the Ghana Police Service has detained four more suspects.

The police report states that on Sunday, February 11, Mr. Eric Johnson was discovered dead in a pool of blood in one of the hotel rooms.

Since then, the Police have started looking into the incident. An individual was previously placed under arrest to aid in the investigation.

“Dookuuri Fausta, Braimah Kasim, Beyuo Felix, and Michael Klugey, who are all employees of the Cossy Hill Hotel, are in Police custody assisting the investigation along with suspect Kumbata Kwaku who was earlier arrested,” the Police stated, providing an update to the public on their investigation.

In order to help the police with their investigation, this raises the total number of suspects to five.

“The police statement concluded that the investigation is still ongoing with the goal of bringing the perpetrator(s) to justice.”

Background
The alleged murder of the business mogul was made known to the public in a Facebook post by one Kennedy Mornah, a reporter from the region. It is believed that Mr. Mornah has a close relationship with the deceased CEO.

”Owner of Jirapa Dubai allegedly murdered? How did we get here? A very sad way indeed to begin the year,” Kennedy Mornah posted on Facebook.

Meanwhile, some unconfirmed reports are connecting the gruesome murder of Mr. Johnson to chieftaincy issues in the Jirapa District, where the deceased hails from.

According to reports, Mr. Eric Johnson was allegedly complicit in a plot to force the Jirapa traditional area’s residents to elect a certain individual as chief.

The move by Mr. Johnson, according to reports, infuriated certain members of the royal family, who petitioned him along with other family members and the Tendaaba, who were plotting to name a chief for the traditional area.

“Mr Eric Johnson should be advised not to gamble with the peace of the Naa Angsoleh Aanaa/Naa Yelpoe Royal families,” portions of the petition read.

“They, therefore, call on all families to rise against Eric Johnson’s naked conduct,” the statement continued. “This is likely to breach the stool and, by extension, the PARAMOUNTCY’s current peace.” Additionally, we would like to clarify that the Jirapa Chieftaincy stool will be given to the highest bidder and is not up for sale.
