The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh has placed a ¢20,000 bounty on the killers of the incumbent MP for Mfantseman Constituency, Ekow Quansah Hayford.
In a statement issued by the Public Relations Directorate of the Service and signed by Supt of Police Sheila Kesse Abayie-Buckman, the Service said the money will only be given for credible information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.
Mr. Hayford together with his driver was shot and killed after their car was attacked on the Nkusukum Mankessim-Abeadze Duadze road in the Central Region.
Eyewitnesses say the suspected armed robbers numbering about six started shooting at the MP’s vehicle when his driver attempted to drive through the robbery operation.
The driver was subsequently shot, resulting in him losing control over the vehicle.
The MP is then alleged to have introduced himself to the robbers which infuriated them. He was then shot twice.
While urging the public to remain calm, the statement also added that the IGP has dispatched a team of investigators from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to support the Central Region’s Crime Scene Team to investigate the incidence.
