The main suspect in the killing of Princess Afia Ahenkan has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for an earlier theft of GH¢167,666. The suspect, Allister John, was convicted on two counts of stealing at the Asokwa Circuit Court after stealing a mobile phone worth GH¢4,000 and stealing the GH¢167,666.

The victim in the case was a businesswoman in Bantama named Gloria Morrison. Allister John worked with the victim as a receptionist in 2022 but left and returned to the facility in July 2023.

He stole her phone when he had been asked to adjust some settings. After fleeing with the phone, Allister John could access the phone and withdrew GH¢167,666 from the victim’s bank account using a mobile app. Allister John reportedly broke into tears when he received the verdict. The suspect also faces separate prosecution after allegedly killing Afia Ahenkan, stealing her car and selling it for GH¢100,000.
