The family of the late New Patriotic Party (NPP) Takoradi constituency treasurer, Mark Ofori has placed a Gh¢50,000 bounty on the head of the killer.
The family suspects the killing was a case of “contract killing” and supports their argument with the reason why it was only a laptop that was taken from the room.
In a radio interview with Accra based Citi FM on Thursday [October 31, 2019], a brother of the deceased, Sam Elis, said it was surprising the assailant did not take away valuable items including a vehicle and money but only took a laptop computer which belonged to the.
He said the family strongly suspects the incident was premeditated.
“What we are saying is that, we’ve placed a GH¢50,000 onboard for whoever has credible information about the killer. The killer just came to the house, he didn’t pick anything and just killed the person and left,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Western Regional Police Commander, DCOP Redeemer Dedjoe has announced that the police has also placed an undisclosed amount as bounty for anyone with credible information the killer.
The late Ofori was shot and killed in his house at Fijai, a suburb of Sekondi in the Western Region on Wednesday at dawn.
Police investigations are still ongoing.
