Police put GH¢10,000 bounty on heads of JB’s killers
The Police Administration is offering GH¢10,000 to anyone with information leading to the arrest of Tuesday’s killers of the MP for Abuakwa North, J. B. Danquah-Adu.
The police are also entreating the public, particularly operators and workers of health facilities, to be on the lookout for persons who may report with fresh knife wounds and report them to the Police.
A statement issued by the police Wednesday, which in part conveyed its condolences to the family of the late MP and its commitment to get to the bottom of the murder, said a crack team of investigators has already begun work to unravel the dastardly act, and called for public cooperation.
“The team which is led by a Senior Police Officer from the CID Headquarters, under the direct supervision of the Director-General/CID has commenced its work in earnest, and the public is hereby entreated to assist the Police with relevant information that could lead to the solution of the crime.”
“Whilst encouraging the public go about their socio-economic activities without any let or hindrance, the police are calling on anyone with any relevant information on the incident to report personally to the CID Headquarters, Accra or any Regional or District Police Headquarters, or call Police emergency number – MTN and Vodafone short-code 18555 or 191 on all Networks.”
JB Danquah-Adu was murdered in his home at dawn of Tuesday, shaking the entire nation into disbelief and arguments of what may have happened.
The police have arrested six persons to assist with preliminary investigations while no one has been able to explain what may have led to the brazen murder.
