Prof  Benneh had retired from the university but works on contract and lives alone in a his mansion at East Legon, not far from American House.

There was no sign of a break in the huge mansion in which the retired lecturer lived alone in East Legon.

Mr Botchway said he lived in Accra Central and Mr Benneh normally called him whenever he needed him to run errands for him.

“The garender then went to inform his [Prof Benneh’s] sister who does not live far away from the house. They went for a carpenter to force the door open,” he continued.
