Ekow Quansah Hayford, the Member of Parliament for Mfantseman was murdered on Friday, October 9. The late MP was returning from a campaign trip with his team when their vehicle was hijacked on the Mankessim-Assufosu highway.
Upon stopping of the vehicle, the armed robbers demanded that the late MP should identify himself. Upon identification, they asked for money from him.
Since the late Mr. Ekow had no money on him, he suggested that the robbers go with him to his house so that he can get them some money.
Unfortunately, Mr. Ekow got shot by the armed robbers, and lost his life at that very instant.
Furthermore, seven suspects have been remanded at the Accra Circuit Court 10, for having a hand in the late MP’s death.
Alhassan Abubakar nicknamed “Abu Fulani”, Naziru Fudailu nicknamed “SP”, Mahama Yahaya nicknamed “Mystical cloud”, Amadu Osmanu, Adam Alhassan, and Mohammed are the names of the suspects expected to have murdered the late Mfantseman MP.
As we speak, they are still in police custody. They have been charged with conspiracy to commit a crime, thus robbery.
The suspects are to reappear in court on October 30, after assisting the police in investigations.
All this story was told by the prosecutor in charge of the case, while presenting these facts at the court.
