Information reaching Voltaonlinegh.com from Sogakope has it that, a suspected robber has committed suicide in police custody, where he was being held in connection with some robbery cases in the area.
According to sources, the 27-year William Gbedze Tovor , who was standing trial at the Sogakope Circuit court for his involvement in series of robberies within the South Tongu district, reportedly hanged himself on the dawn of Wednesday, when he was scheduled to reappear in court.
A Police source narrated to Voltanlinegh.com that, at about 5:48am the inmates of Sogakope Police Cells raised alarm few minutes after opening the inner cells to inform the two Charge Office personnel that remand suspect Tovor was hanging himself in the cell with a blanket provided for them for bedding
The men rushed in and cut off the piece of blanket around the victim’s neck which he tightened to the bar of the ventilation hole of the cells and rushed him to Comboni Hospital, Sogakofe where he was pronounced dead.
His body has since been deposited at the hospital morgue pending autopsy.
The suspect was arrested by the Sogakope Police in April, after he went on a robbery spree in a nearby community, Kudzekope where he terrorized three residents at gun point and made away with their personal belongings including mobile phones.
