Robbers kill SDA pastor

The head pastor of Effiduase Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church, and Assistant Headmaster, in charge of Administration of Okomfo Anokye Senior High School, in the Ashanti Region, was on Saturday afternoon   shot dead by armed robbers.

Pastor James Agyei, 53, who is also is a national executive of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), was killed between Abuaboja and Abubenso communities in the Afigya Kwabre district, on his way for pastoral duties.

According to residents, Pastor Agyei, who was driving a white Benz with registration number WR 8808 A, reportedly bumped into the robbers, who flagged him to stop.
Realizing their intent, he tried speeding off, but the robbers shot him at close range, killing him on the spot, and made away with two mobile phones and some unspecified cash.

The body has since been deposited at Offinso St Patrick Hospital while police have launched a manhunt for the robbers. –
