Footballer Gunned Down At Ashaiman

A 28-YEAR-OLD footballer has been shot dead at Old Tualaku, a suburb of Ashaiman, over unknown reason.

The youngster, Shiraz Fatau alias West, was said to have been shot in the neck by some five gun wielding men.

He was rushed to the Tema General Hospital before he was referred to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra where he passed away shortly on admission.

His remains were conveyed to the General Hospital morgue before he was buried at the Community 9 cemetery in Tema, according to Islamic rites.

The incident led to irate youth numbering about 200, to mass up at the Ashaiman District Police Station with the intention of forcibly bringing out from the police cells the suspect for instant justice.

A timely intervention by the Rapid Deployment Force from the Tema Regional Police Command with their counterpart at Ashaiman calmed down matters.

Currently, the Ashaiman police have placed into custody three suspects in connection with the heinous crime.

The suspects’ names were given as Ibrahim Shaban, 19-year-old auto mechanic, who led the police to the hideout of the second suspect, a 26-year-old driver’s mate, at Adjei Kojo, with a third suspect also arrested.

Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Juliana Obeng, Tema Regional police spokeswoman, told DAILY GUIDE that on Sunday, June 28, 2015, the command received information that five men armed with short guns, stormed Ashaiman Old Tulaku at 12.20 am, attacked and shot the deceased and bolted away.
