According to police, Mr Johnson’s dead corpse was discovered in a pool of blood on Sunday, February 11.

“The deceased was found on 11th February, 2024 lying in a pool of blood in one of the rooms at the hotel,” the Police said in a statement.

The suspected murder of the business mogul was made public in a Facebook post by Kennedy Mornah, a regional reporter. It is thought that Mr Mornah had a strong relationship with the deceased CEO.

”Owner of Jirapa Dubai allegedly murdered? How did we get here? A very sad way indeed to begin the year,” Kennedy Mornah posted on Facebook.

Meanwhile, some unsubstantiated rumours link Mr. Johnson’s heinous murder to chieftaincy conflicts in the Jirapa District, where the dead is from.

According to sources, Mr. Eric Johnson was reportedly involved in a conspiracy to compel the Jirapa traditional area’s population to pick a certain candidate as chief.

According to sources, Mr. Johnson’s decision enraged certain members of the royal family, who petitioned him together with other family members and the Tendaaba, who were planning to choose a chief for the traditional territory.

“Mr Eric Johnson should be advised not to gamble with the peace of the Naa Angsoleh Aanaa/Naa Yelpoe Royal families,” portions of the petition read.

It added, “They, therefore, call on all families to rise against the naked conduct by Eric Johnson which is likely to breach the stool and, by extension, the PARAMOUNTCY the peace it is currently enjoying. We also wish to state that, the Jirapa Chieftaincy stool is not for sale and to be offered to the highest bidder.”
