The  assailant  allegedly trailed the victim the previous night from his shop at Kokompe and  stabbed him, but he survived they continued to his home to ‘finish him.’

At the moment, the Command has mounted a search for Chidi one of Amah’s workers who is currently on the run and suspected to have masterminded the attack on his employer.

Amah at the moment is in critical condition at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital.

Briefing The Ghanaian Times yesterday, the Police Public Relations Officer [PRO], Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Olivia Ewurabena Adiku, said on Wednesday, November 20, Amah together with Chidi, the suspect  on the run, went  to Accra to sell some scraps at a cost  of GH¢80,000.  They both returned to Takoradi at about  10 pm.

She said Amah asked Chidi to go home while he did some checks about the security at the shop at Kokompe, but,  just as  he arrived at the workplace, he was attacked  and stab-bed by unknown people who left the scene after the attack

“But he did not go home.” the PRO told The Ghanaian Times.

Asp Adiku said the next morning as  Amah  was  on his way  home, he was again attacked and shot  on the  left side of  the stomach  by some  people adding that, some neigh-bours, who heard the gunshots contacted the  police who arrived at the scene and took the victim to the hospital.

She said at the hospital, Amah kept mentioning the name of Worzor King, and, subsequently, the police arrested him to assist them in their investigations.

‘’Amah is still in critical condition and could not talk. But, we hope to get some more information on the matter as our investigations continue,” ASP. Adiku told The Ghanaian Times.

Meanwhile, the police are still investigating the whereabout, of the said GH¢80,000.  From Clement Adzei Boye, Sekondi
