Morning show host, two others sustain gunshot wounds after attack


Host of Kapital Radio’s morning show, Kojo Marfo, and two of his friends were shot Sunday by unknown gun men at Nkoranza near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

Mr Marfo, who is also son of the Regional Security Liaison Officer, was shot in the thigh while his friends also sustained severe gunshot wounds.

Doctors at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) last night started a surgical procedure to remove bullet pellets from their bodies.

An eyewitness told Joy News that about five armed men stormed into the residence of Kojo Marfo and started shooting.

The eyewitness said the armed men managed to take a passerby hostage and forced him to open the door to a room where Kojo Marfo and his friends had been hiding.

After opening the door, the armed men started shooting sporadically, hitting Kojo Marfo and his friends.

Ashanti Regional Police Commander DCOP Kofi Boakye who visited the crime scene said investigation has begun.

He told Luv FM’s Erastus Asare Donkor that police have leads but said it is not time to comment on the media.

Meanwhile, Erastus revealed Monday the three victims are responding to treatment at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
