The Eastern Regional Police Command is on a manhunt for a gunman who shot and killed a Mobile Money agent at Okorase near Koforidua, on Saturday 19th June, 2021.
36-year-old Solomon Arhin, who was also a teacher at Behenase R/C Basic School in Tinkong, was shot on his way home after locking his shop.
The police, who have begun investigations, are suspecting a case of contract killing as all valuables belonging to the deceased were still by him at the time police got to the scene.
The Eastern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh, who spoke to Citi News said, “After he had been shot, he struggled within a distance of about 17 metres away from the crime scene, and fell down at a certain house calling for help. People came out to help, but unfortunately, after struggling to position him well to transport him to the hospital, he died. We have begun investigations into it and we will brief the media soon.”
