MyNewsGh.com has reported that two people have been arrested in connexion with the murder of a Member of Parliament(MP).
Police investigators from the Central Regional Police Command, who have been working diligently since last Friday to catch the perpetrators of the dastardly act, picked up the suspects.
The specifics of the two suspects remain sketchy, but sources at the Central Regional Police Command indicate that in connexion with the murder, there is a search for other suspects.
“Two people have been detained in some communities in the area from their hiding places and are helping police to apprehend their accomplices,” our source revealed.
On the Abeadze Dominase-Abeadze Duadzi-Mankessim Lane, the Mfantseman Member of Parliament Ekow Hayford Quansah was shot while returning from a campaign trip around the town.
“An eye witness who talked to MyNewsGh.com about the incident said,” We were ordered to lie down by attackers who were not masked; some of us fled to the bush. Immediately, the gunmen shot at the MP who was at the time in his Land Cruiser.
And so we got closer to the MP after they left, who was groaning in agony as he pleaded for water. When I returned with the drink, he did not respond to my calls,’ the witness recalled.
Ekow Quansah Hayford was the parliamentary candidate of the New Patriotic Party in the Mfantseman Constituency for the forthcoming election and a member of the seventh Parliament.
