Abdul Rashid Maizango, the 29-year-old mistaken suspect in the murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, a member of the Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Tiger Eye PI Team member, is home now but without the GH¢20,000 the law enforcement agents took from him.
There is even a contention over how much the police reportedly took from him, as the ‘exonerated’ man continues to claim it was GH¢25,000 instead of GH¢20,000.
“The family was told that the money is in the possession of the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department herself but who has traveled outside the country. We have been told to wait until her return so the money and the phone which was also seized would be returned,” Abdul Nasir, senior brother of Maizango told DAILY GUIDE yesterday.
When COP Tiwas Addo-Danquah, the Director General of the CID, returns from her foreign trip and hands over the wad of money to the ‘exonerated’ suspect, he could dispute the exact amount of money the police collected from him.
While the Greater Accra Regional Police Command claims the suspect tried bribing them with GH¢20,000, the young man has said otherwise, pointing at GH¢25,000 as the total amount in his car when he was arrested.
If the former suspect’s story is the truth then an amount of GH¢5,000 is missing.
The Police, during their engagement with the media when Abdul Rashid was arrested, announced that the suspect attempted bribing them with GH¢20,000.
