Former President Jerry John Rawlings is offering an additional amount of 25,000 cedis to earlier offers towards reliable information leading to the arrest of the attackers who killed the Assemblyman for Sogakope, Marcus Adzahli last Sunday and for those who committed another violent robbery in Vume, also in the South Tongu District about a month ago

The Regional Minister and the assembly had earlier offered 10,000 cedis each for the same purpose.

According to a statement issued and signed by Kobina Andoh Amoakwa, at the Communications Directorate, the former President expressed disgust at the trend of violent attacks in the South Tongu area.

Flt Lt Rawlings urged the residents to exercise their right to anger and protest, but not to express their anger in the wrong direction or through the wrong action.

The attackers of the Assemblyman refused to accept an offer of ¢30,000 (thirty thousand cedis) from the victim’s wife in a plea to save his life, insisting money was not the reason for the attack. They subsequently snatched the money only after they had shot, stabbed and killed Adzahli.

The wife, sister and child of the deceased who were also injured in the attack are on admission at the District Hospital. The victim of the Vume attack a month ago is also currently on admission at the Dzodze Hospital.

Residents on Tuesday protested the failure of the police to act on the spate of violent attacks by blocking the Sogakope Bridge and besieging the police station, a situation that led to a confrontation with the police who shot and injured at least three demonstrators.

Aside the Police, informants who wish to offer confidential information leading to the apprehension of all the assailants can also call or text the former President’s office directly on 020 073 6637.
