BEKWAI:Police offers GH¢5,000.00 for the arrest NDC Chairman’s attackers

 
Police  

The Police Administration has offered a reward of GH¢5,000.00 to anyone, who provides information that will lead to the arrest of criminals, who violently attacked the Asante-Bekwai Constituency Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Mr Sulley Musah was beaten up until he was blackout at Behenase near Anhwiankwanta on Thursday, December 13, and is now on admission at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).

He was said to be driving towards Behenase from Bekwai and mid-way through, he pulled up to attend to nature’s call in the bush.

There, it is alleged that three stoutly built men accosted him and subjected him to severe beating until he dropped unconscious.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Augustine Gyenning, the Ashanti Regional Commander, announced the reward at a press conference held in Kumasi on Monday.

The conference was to review the post-election security situation in the region.

He said except for few incidents, all had generally been calm during and after the elections. These had to do with assault and multiple-registration.

Some arrests were made with some of the culprits already put before the courts.

The Regional Commander gave the assurance that all offenders would be brought before justice.

The just ended polls, he said, would go down in history as the most peaceful in Ashanti and commended the people, security personnel and the media.

DCOP Gyenning encouraged the media to continue to be responsible by upholding professional standards and ethics.

He advised them not to do anything that would create confusion.
