South Tongu Assembly puts GH¢10,000.00 bounty on Assemblyman’s killers

The South Tongu District Assembly in the Volta Region has placed a GH¢10,000.00 bounty on the head of the killers of the assembly member for the Sogakope South electoral area, Marcus Mawutor Adzahli.

Mr. Adzahli was allegedly murdered by unknown persons at Toklopo near Sogakope in the early hours of Sunday, March 1.

Dr. Archibald Yao Letsa, Volta Regional Minister announced the reward for information leading to the arrest of those behind the horrific murder, when he led some staff of the Volta Regional Coordinating Council and the South Tongu District Assembly to commiserate with the family of the deceased.

He said he heard about the incident whilst in a meeting in Accra and had been directed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to convey the sympathy of the government to the family.

He asked elders in the community to engage the youth to allow security officers to do their work and not take the law into their hands.

“We will do our best to bring the perpetrators to book and we would not shield anybody so please speak to the youth not to act based on hearsay, since hear say can lead you astray.”

The Regional Minister said security agencies would do to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to justice.

Mr. Innocent Gbedzi, Assembly Member for Hlevi Toklokpo electoral area, said they were ready to assist the police in investigations and underlined the need for the police to respond swiftly to emergency situations.

“The police are doing their best yet it is not enough. In times of crime, we call on the police and they don’t respond on time. The crime ends and they rush to the scene most often, which is not the best,” he lamented.

Torgbi Adeti II, the Adzahli family head commended the Regional Minister, the Assembly and Government for the support and pleaded with the police to go to every length help bring the perpetrators to book.

Mr. Adzahli, alias Mac Greenline, was shot dead at his residence on Sunday by some eight unknown assailants.

His neighbours told the Ghana News Agency they heard noise from the house at about 0100 hours, followed by several gunshots.

They said they found Mr. Adzahli and his wife in a pool of blood when they rushed to the scene and sent them to the Sogakofe District Hospital where Mr. Adzahli was confirmed dead.

His wife is however said to be responding to treatment at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

Mr Adzahli was the owner of Mac Greenline ventures, a mobile phone shop in Sogakope.
