Former President Jerry John Rawlings has offered an amount of GHC25,000 for information leading to the arrest of the killers of the Assemblyman for Sogakope, Marcus Adzahli.
The amount also caters for any information on those who committed another violent robbery in Vume, about a month ago.
Mr Rawlings in a statement expressed disgust at the trend of violent attacks in the South Tongu area and described the killing of the Assemblyman as a politically related murder.
The statement urged informants who wish to offer confidential information leading to the apprehension of all the assailants to call or text the former President’s office directly on 020 073 6637.
This brings the total bounty to GHC45,000 as the Regional Minister and the assembly had earlier offered 10,000 cedis each for the same purpose.
The Assemblyman for Sogakope, Marcus Adzahli was gruesomely murdered by some unknown assailants at his residence.
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.
