Three of the wanted suspects, Wayo, Rock and Petit voluntarily surrendered to police according to the Ashanti Regional Police PRO Godwin Ahianyo who addressed the media in
According to Godwin Ahianwo, the 3 suspects have been detained to assist the police in investigations into the matter and appealed to those on the run to also surrender for their own good or would face the consequences upon their arrest
He added that the 3 suspects will appear before law court from Monday February 4, 2018.
It would recalled that on February 18, 2019 one person was shot dead and another sustained injuries following a disagreement between two individuals belonging to different vigilante groups in the NDC.
Earlier, NDC executives claimed the gunman was riding on a motorbike believed to be an outsider but subsequent accounts proved this as inaccurate.
One of the suspects Samuel Agyin aka ROCK who was at the scene revealed that he was innocent and played no role in the dastardly act but that one Warrior currently on the run is the one who must be arrested.
In an interview with Kumasi-based Pure Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com, ROCK who is a barber by profession at Ahwiaa Pankrono disclosed that he is not part of the HAWKS squad alleged to have carried the dastardly action.
According to him, the police know the one who carried the act wondering why his name was added among the list of wanted persons revealing that one Warrior is responsible because he (ROCK) had no confrontation with anyone at the party headquarters.
“I am the one whose image has been added among the list of wanted person. The incident did not happen in the night so that police will say they do not know him. Warrior is the one who committed the act why add my name which resulted in the collapse of my mum”, he revealed on the show.
