Police in Kumasi on manhunt for suspects involved in Krofrom murder

Police in Kumasi are on a manhunt for suspects involved in the killing of a young man in Krofrom, a suburb of Kumasi.

The 26-year-old was attacked by a group of young men in what appeared to be revenge after they had a violent confrontation with him in 2022.

The victim who was inflicted with multiple machete wounds was pronounced dead shortly after been transported to a local hospital.

Following the incident, some persons suspected to be friends of the deceased set fire to the family house of one of the suspects.

The Ashanti regional police commander, DCOP Afful Boakye Yiadom said “We are seriously looking for the other suspects. They are your siblings, you live with them, they are your family, you know their whereabouts, try to assist us to arrest them. Come to my office if you know of their hideouts. We will not allow anyone to take the laws into their hands. If they are also listening to me, for their own safety, they should come out and report themselves, we will fish them out from their hideouts,”

The Unit Committee Secretary of Krofrom East Electoral area, Albert Boakye Dankwa said “Calm has been restored following the arrest of one of the suspects. Police are doing a very good job concerning the intelligence they are building. My message to residents is that we can’t take the law into our own hands, let’s look at the police as they manhunt the other suspects. Let’s exercise a bit of patience. I will urge them to stop any form of violence as we wait on the police.”
