Josephine Asante, Tema Port Public Affairs Manager stabbed to death

The Marketing and Public Affairs Manager at the Tema Port, Josephine Asante, has been found dead Saturday.

She was stabbed to death at her residence at community 25 in Tema.

The incident which occurred last night after the deceased had returned from a Senior Staff party was confirmed by a source at Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA).

Madam Asante was attacked in her bedroom soon after she returned from the Senior Staff party on Saturday night.

The attacker or attackers locked her inside her bedroom and threw the keys unto the compound after their gruesome murder.

Occupants of the house according to sources, are said to have discovered the body in the morning after they saw the keys to the deceased’s bedroom on the compound.

“The deceased’s child and other occupants of the house in the morning found the keys to her bedroom on the compound and upon opening the room they found her in a pool of blood. The children raised an alarm which drew some neighbors to the scene”.

It is however not clear who is behind the attack and the exact time the incident might have occurred, as the deceased’s child and other occupants of the house did not notice her arrival to the house after the party.

Though the deceased’s laptop computer, phones, jewellery and other important accessories were exposed, the assailant did not take anything.

The deceased’s 12-year-old son has however been moved from the house by the management of GPHA.

Some staff of the Ghana Port and Harbours Authority have trooped to the residence of the deceased as management is working with the police to convey the body to the morgue for the commencement of investigations into the incident.

News of her murder follows one that was carried out on a top Manager of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), two weeks ago.

He was shot dead by unknown assailants in Gbangu in the East Mamprusi District of the Northern Region.

Joseph Miigaai Jakperuk who is Deputy Distribution Manager of Accra East Region of GWCL was traveling to his hometown in the Bunkpurugu District when he was stopped by the hoodlums in the night who after barricading the road with pieces of wood, pulled him out of his cross country vehicle and shot him.
