”Folks, I had wanted not to be the breaker of such ominous news, but the calls are incessant: The world is damned evil; Prof. Yaw Benneh of Legon Law has been 'murdered' in JB-style in his Adjirigano mansion.

“It appears to be an act perpetuated about three days ago, but it was just discovered this morning,” Dr Adusei wrote.

He held a postgraduate Certificate in International and Comparative Law from University of Leiden.
