Police in Kumasi are on a manhunt for four armed men on motorbikes who robbed and killed a caretaker of the Bantama Seventh Day Adventist Church, in broad daylight, on Tuesday, June 30, 2020.
Mark Amofah was returning from the bank in the afternoon when the assailants on two unregistered motorbikes attacked him.
They reportedly took away GH4,300 in cash, at the church entrance, before shooting him at close range in the chest.

According to an eyewitness, motorists refused to convey wounded Mr. Amofah to nearby Komfo Anokye Hospital, amid profuse bleeding.
Doctors pronounced him dead a few minutes on arrival at the hospital after he was eventually transported there in one of the church buses.
An eyewitness who spoke on condition of anonymity says the robbers trailed the deceased from the Abrepo Junction branch of Ecobank where he had withdrawn the money. Read More…
