The Italian High Commissioner to the Republic of Ghana, Ambassador Laura Carpini, through a staff of the Italian embassy, who gave her name as Theresa, has reacted to the gruesome murder of the Italian national named Bellunator Egle, who was found in a pool of blood on Tuesday by her partner.
The Embassy while reacting to the story said though the incident was reported the following day after by the Ghana Police; the Embassy is cooperating with the security agency in the investigation into the case.
She corrected the notion that Italians are beginning to become a target for assassination in Ghana, saying the case is obviously a robbery case-gone-sour: “because, according to the report we have, the couple’s phone and Laptop was taken by the assailants. So Italians in Ghana have nothing to fear” she said.
She informed further that, the homicide unit of the Ghana Police Service is investigating the case. “On our side, we are working on getting the partner a lawyer and a translator in order to see this case through to its logical end” she submitted.
Bellunator Egle, was found dead by her partner, Saradura Lucci, stabbed several times in the neck by her assailants around 9:30am Tuesday morning. An eyewitness said the partner left the house around 9:00am to town in order to purchase some necessaries for the couple’s use.
On his return around, he saw the door to the house left ajar, and Bellunator lying in a pool of blood on the floor with their clothings and other valuables tossed hither and thither.
While some residents believed a close pal of the couple might have committed the act, others said it was the work of armed robbers.
According to a police spokesperson, the homicide unit of the Ghana Police Service is working to unravel the mystery behind the murder.
In June 2012, another Italian Paola Badalassi, 49 was shot at close range in the head when a bus she was traveling in from Asankragua to Accra was ambushed and robbed.
However, Awudu Mumuni aka Baba Ayitey, 45, and Charles Agyeman aka Nana Yaw, 23, were arrested by the Buffalo Unit in Kumasi in connection with the murder of Paola Badalassi.
