Revealed: Murdered MP Begged Robbers To Follow Him Home For Money – Police



Late Mfantseman MP Ekow Kwansa-Hayford pleaded with armed robbers who attacked him to follow him to his house to receive monies they were demanding, the Police has disclosed.

Police prosecutors who arraigned the arrested suspects before court told the court that the robbers demanded money from the MP who then pleaded that he had run out of cash because he was just returning from a campaign trip therefore they should follow him home.

However, the plea did not convince the robbers as they shot him instantly.

Narrating the incidence to the court, Chief Inspector Seth Frimpong said Police had intel that robbers had mounted barriers at Abeadze—Dominase Mankesim road and were robbing unsuspecting travellers.

Rushing to the scene, they found some persons shot, with Ekow Hayford later identified as an MP for Mfantseman Constituency.

Detailing how he got shot, the police noted that the Mitsubushi truck the MP and his company drove was shot, forcing it to grind to a halt after running into a ditch.

The robbers then surrounded the vehicle and demanded money while asking which of them was the MP. Ekow Hayford then identified himself as the MP.

“So they pounced on him and collected his Samsung galaxy 850 mobile phone and demanded money. The late MP told the robbers that he had used up all his money as he was returning from campaign tour. He, therefore, pleaded with them to take him to his house to give them money but they refused and shot him, killing him instantly,” Chief Insp. Frimpong told the court.

I Always Thought That Old Man Will Be Different – Manasseh Azure Shades Disappointing Buhari And Akufo-Addo



Renowned Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has in a usual coded message, addressed his disappointment in an unnamed ‘old man’, who failed to be different as was touted.

Manasseh Azure Awuni, who is known for his usually thought-provoking writings laced with proverbs and insinuations, this time appear to have delivered a write-up addressed to two people.

Even though the former Joy FM journalist failed to mention any names, many readers and fans who commented under his social media posts are already pointing fingers at Presidents; Akufo-Addo and Muhamadu Buhari.

In a Facebook post, he wrote, “

I used to think that old man would be different. They said he hated corruption and would end it. I thought, with his age, he would think about leaving a legacy instead of just adding up to the number of failed rulers of the continent. They said he would not tolerate nonsense. Now, it’s clear the promoters of those character traits were lying, or they too did not know him well. We now know him for who he is. #ENDSARSNOW
