Two people have been arrested by the Assin Fosu Police Command in connection with the shooting of five executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and six residents of Assin Aworoso in the Assin South District of the Central Region. The two are a 42-year-old man who gave his name as ‘Teacher’ and a 45-year-old Kofi Yevu. The two are expected to be taken to court for prosecution on Wednesday, August 28, after police investigations. The Central Regional Police Public Affairs Director, DSP Irene Oppong, who confirmed this to Ouna FM’s Yen Sempa on Tuesday, explained that “we have gotten one person, Daniel Owusu, the assembly man for Assin Aworoso Electoral Area who has come to report to the police”. “He is the only one the police have identified. He said some others have been injured but we have not gotten them so we urged them to report to the police for medical forms to be issued to them and to help us with our investigations”. The PRO said “[the victims] would be given medical forms to go to the hospital and to help us with investigations”. Arrest “We have arrested two people who are helping us with the investigations. We had locally manufactured guns from them after a search and they are helping with the investigations,” she added. DSP Oppong noted that “we arrested them [on Monday, August 26, 2019] and they are in our custody. We shall take them to court within 48-hours”. The Assin South Constituency Assistant Secretary of the NPP, Oppong Amoateng, told Yen Sempa host Bright Kwasi Asempa that those arrested were the landlord of the house where the gun shots were fired from and a tenant in the house at that moment who they suspect is an NDC member.
