Ash Town killer identified

The Ashanti Regional Police Command has placed a GH¢2,000 bounty each on four suspected criminals who allegedly shot and killed Kwame Antwi at Ash Town, near Nana Buabasa’s residence, in Kumasi last Friday.

Antwi, until his death, was a security man at C. Weareman Company Limited at Atonsu in Kumasi.

The four suspects are Kwame Sasraku, Bonty Killer (alias Wunda), West (alias Nana Yaw) and Dragno.

Briefing journalists in Kumasi Tuesday, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Nathan Kofi Boakye, said investigations revealed that Bonty Killer, also known as Hyundai Guy, used a weapon, suspected to be a locally manufactured pistol, in shooting Antwi and has since relocated to Accra.

He said about 5:30 p.m. last Friday, Antwi, in the company of his friends, Richard Owusu, Richard Wiafe, Patrick Sarpong and Kofi Kwarteng, went to a ‘pito’ bar at Ash Town Down Town area to drink.

Immediately Antwi and his friends left the bar, called Sweet Mother, they were accosted by two young men who attacked them.

Five other persons, including Sasraku, a goldsmith apprentice who resides at Ash Town, reportedly joined the two men to physically assault Antwi and his friends and, in the process, Antwi was shot in the head.

The assailants later joined a waiting taxi, a KIA Pride, and sped off.
