Family of the late Prampram Mankralo Nene Atsure Benta III has marked 3 years since his “heartbreaking” demise.
Nene Benta III was shot in the head and rib by unknown armed men on December 14, 2018 at an intersection at Appolonia, near Tema, while on his way from a meeting of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs at Dodowa.
He was found in a pool of blood in the driver’s seat of his Mercedes Benz car with registration number GT 6618 T.
He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.
In a statement released exactly three years after the incident, his family says relatives are in pains in their hearts.
“We immensely thank the Almighty God for seeing us through this day. We give all glory to God for his kindness towards this noble family since the untimely death of our noble brother, father, uncle and the pride of Obonu We at Prampram.
“As we say ‘Vengeance is the Lord’s’!”
The family stated that they stayed calm knowing that judgement on the unknown assailant will one day be served.
They called on religious leaders and other institutions to protect the right of innocent Ghanaians.
“We, however, call on the religious bodies such as Christian Council of Ghana, Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference, Ghana Islamic Association and others to keep their eyes on the Nene Atsure Benta’s murder case by ensuring that the right of innocent citizens, dead or alive, are protected and appropriately punish perpetrators.
“It has been one of the biggest tragedies that has befallen our dear nation but we trust that the judiciary and Ghana Police would make the family of Nene Atsure Benta III as well as the entire nation proud and dealing with those cases with a touch of patriotism and professionalism.”
The statement concluded that even though they are relying on the state to fight and operate justice, they will make sure they pool resources together and seek justice.
“We the descendants of Nene Nii Nartey Agbo and all those who are in love with us will put all resources and intelligence together and fight and seek for justice for our late brother, Nene Atsure Benta.”
