Murder At Ashieyie

AwalA 32-year-old   man was shot dead and two others injured when a   group of landguards attacked them at Ashieyie, Adentan near Accra at the weekend.

The deceased, only identified as Awal, and the other victims, Ofori and Kojo Abankwan of Irroko Company were attacked in their vehicle on their way to work at Ashieyie.

The gang shot through their Land Rover vehicle with registration GE 749 W, smashing  the glasses.

Police sources believed the attack might be linked to  a land dispute.

The  Adentan  District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Stephen Kofi Ahiatafu, told The Ghanaian Times that, Abankwan  and Ofori are currently in coma and receiving treatment at the 37 Military Hospital.

He said  on April 26, at about 4 p.m., the police had information that a Francis Alalemo of Amanfrom and a group of  landguards had attacked and shot the owner of Irroko Company and other victims.

He said when the police got to the scene, they saw Awal’s body in a bush, about 300 metres from the Land Rover.

DSP Ahiatafu said there had been a land dispute between Ashieyie Amanfrom and Katamanso involving a piece of land on which Mr. Ofori had been residing for  years.

He said Awal’s body has been deposited at the Police morgue.

He said so far, no arrest had been made, adding that the police would do everything possible to bring the culprits to book.

DSP Ahiatafu urged the public to assist the police with  information to arrest the perpetrators. By Agnes Opoku Sarpong
