Two people have reportedly been detained by the Ghana Police Service in connexion with the murder of Ekow Quansah Hayford, MP for Mfantseman.
Sources say investigators from the Central Regional Police Command picked up the suspects from their hideouts in some communities throughout the area.
While descriptions of the two suspects remain sketchy, information available suggests that in connexion with the crime, there is a search for other suspects.
After his car was targeted on the Nkusukum Mankessim-Abeadze Duadze road in the Central Area, Mr. Hayford was shot and killed.
Eyewitnesses claim that when his driver tried to drive away from the robbery operation, the alleged armed robbers numbering about six fired at the MP ‘s car.
The driver was shot by the armed robbers after the car stopped, to act as a deterrent to anyone who might attempt to flee.
When asked who the constituency’s MP was, the MP is alleged to have stated his identity to the robbers. Then he was shot twice, which resulted in his death.
In the meantime, James Oppong-Boanuh, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), has put a $20,000 reward on the killers of Ekow Quansah Hayford, the incumbent MP for Mfantseman Constituency.
In a statement released by the Service’s Public Relations Directorate and signed by Police Superintendent Sheila Kesse Abayie-Buckman, the Service claimed that the money would only be provided for reliable information that would lead to the suspects being arrested.
