The Operations Manager at the Cantoments branch of Ecobank, Seth Akyea, has been shot dead by three unidentified assailants at his Kasoa residence.
The 40-year-old was shot dead Friday around 9:30pm as he arrived from work.
According to the Kasoa Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Samuel Winful, the deceased’s vehicle was taken by the suspects but was later abandoned.
“When he got home, he got down from the car and the suspects attacked him. They requested for his car keys. There was a lady in the car and the suspects asked her to go into the house,” Supt. Winful told Citi FM.
He added: “They marched the deceased to the passenger side and had a conversation with him before they shot him. And they took the car with them but the car has currently been retrieved. The murderers are three in all.
Meanwhile, the police have ruled out the incident as a contract killing, saying investigations are still ongoing.
“Now we cannot say it is contract killing and we are doing our investigations to unravel everything connected to the incident,” Supt. Winful added.
