Rawlings offers GH¢25,000 bounty on Sogakope South Assemblyman’s killers


Former President Jerry John Rawlings has offered an additional amount of GH¢25,000 to previous bounties on the killers of Sogakope South Assemblyman.

This is towards the release of reliable information which would lead to the arrest of killers of Marcus Adzahli last Sunday, as well as, for those who committed another violent robbery in Vume, also in the South Tongu District, about a month ago

The Regional Minister and the assembly had earlier offered GH¢10,000 each for the same purpose.

The former President expressed disgust at the trend of violent attacks in the South Tongu area, describing the killing of the Assemblyman as a politically related murder.

Mr Rawlings urged the residents to exercise their right to anger and protest, but not to express their anger in the wrong direction or through the wrong action.

The attackers of the Assemblyman refused to accept an offer of GH¢30,000 from the victim’s wife in a plea to save his life, insisting money was not the reason for the attack.

They subsequently snatched the money only after they had shot, stabbed and killed Adzahli.

The wife, sister and child of the deceased who were also injured in the attack are on admission at the District Hospital. The victim of the Vume attack a month ago is also currently on admission at the Dzodze Hospital.

Residents on Tuesday protested the failure of the police to act on the spate of violent attacks by blocking the Sogakope Bridge and besieging the police station, a situation that led to a confrontation with the police who shot and injured at least three demonstrators.
