Twumasi, who is married with children, is accused of shooting the 27-year-old mother of one at close range on April 20th, 2023 in Adum, Kumasi. Daapa was taken to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital where she was declared dead upon arrival.
The police issued a press release on April 23rd, 2023 stating that Twumasi was apprehended at Sekyere near Effiduase in the Ashanti Region.
“The Police have this evening arrested a Police officer, Inspector Ahmed Twumasi, who is alleged to have shot and killed a female adult, who was believed to be his girlfriend,” the statement read.
“The shooting incident occurred in Kumasi, in the Ashanti region, on Thursday, 20th April 2023.

The suspect is currently in Police custody and will be put before court to face justice.”
According to reports, the police officer believed that Maa Adwoa was being unfaithful to him. Despite her denying the accusations, he grew progressively more agitated. An eyewitness stated that the officer kissed Maa Adwoa before fatally shooting her.
“After the first two shots, she was pleading with the guy to stop and he added three more shots before jumping into a rickshaw to run away. Because he was holding a gun, we could not attempt to arrest him,” the eyewitness narrated.
According to Maa Adwoa’s uncle, who was present at the scene, the police officer shot her in the forehead followed by multiple shots to her stomach and other parts of her body until she fell and died.
As per Atakora, Maa Adwoa’s father, who spoke to GHPage, his daughter had a boyfriend known to him, and they both had a baby girl together.
“The man I know is a footballer. He even has a brother who has played for the Black Stars before. He and Madwoa have a daughter together. I am not aware of this police inspector and his relationship with my child,” the heartbroken father said.
