55-year-old man killed by armed robbers near Akatsi

For these past few days, everywhere you look on social media is full of sad news.

Another sad news has just trooped in from Volta Region.

According to a report by  Broadcasting Corporation, some unidentified gunmen have shot and killed a 55-year-old farmer around Tordzinu and Dorkploame area in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region.

The gunmen also robbed a businessman who was on his way home.

Mr. Christian Dzifa Tordzro, the Assembly Member of the area, said the incident occurred on Tuesday at about 1830 hours.

He said the deceased, Mr. Francis Kwaku Dey, who hailed from Klotekpo-Dorkploame, was shot and killed while on his motorbike at a spot on the Tordzinu-Dorkploame feeder road.

He said the gunmen took away his money, mobile phone and other items.

Mr. Tordzro said the perpetrators, who hid in a nearby bush, later robbed Mr Israel Nanenu, an MTN, Vodafone and Airtel Merchant at the same spot, where the deceased was killed.

“They tortured him and took away 10 mobile phones, over GH¢13,000 and other valuable items,” he said.

Mr. Tordzro explained that the second victim, on his way home, saw the motorbike of the deceased, who bypassed him on the way lying in the middle of the road with the traffic indicators on.

“He decided to stop to find out what was going wrong and suddenly, three young men from the bush rushed on him with a gun commanding the victim to kneel with his bag handed over to them,” Mr Tordzro stated.

The Akatsi Police command has confirmed.

However, no arrest has been made yet.

Mr Kobla Woyome,  Member of Parliament (MP) for South Tongu,  who visited the residence of the deceased, has called on members of the community to provide the police with any vital information on the incident to bring the perpetrators to book.

He pledged an amount of GHC5000.00 for anyone who would assist the Police to arrest the culprits.

The body of the deceased has been deposited at the St. Paul Hospital morgue at Akatsi pending postmortem.
