Two persons have been arrested in connection with the murder of the MP for Mfantseman, late Hon. Ekow Hayford Quansah following the president’s call on the IGP to see to it that the culprits are made to face the law.
Sources say the suspects were picked up by investigators from the Central Regional Police Command from their hideouts in some communities within the region.
Although details of the two suspects remain sketchy, available information indicates that there is a hunt for other suspects in connection with the crime.
“Two persons have been arrested from their hideouts in some communities within the region and are helping police to apprehend their accomplices” our source revealed.
The Mfantseman Member of Parliament Ekow Hayford Quansah was shot on the Abeadze Dominase – Abeadze Duadzi – Mankessim Road while returning from a campaign trip.
An eye witness said:
“the attackers who were not masked asked us to lie down; some of us run to the bush. The gunmen immediately shot at the MP who was in his Land Cruiser at the time.
“And so after they had left we got closer to the MP who was groaning in pain as he asked for water. He was not responding to my calls when I returned with the drink,” the witness recounted.
Ekow Quansah Hayford was the New Patriotic Party’s Parliamentary Candidate in the Mfantseman Constituency for the impending election and a member of the seventh Parliament.
Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh has also placed a ¢20,000 bounty on the killers of the late MP.
