Speaking to MyNewsGh.com on the incident, an eye witness said, “The attackers who were not masked asked us to lie down; some of us run to the bush. The gunmen immediately shot at the MP who was in his Land Cruiser at the time.”
“And so after they had left we got closer to the MP who was groaning in pain as he asked for water. He was not responding to my calls when I returned with the drink”, the witness recounted.
At the moment, the body of the assailed MP has been deposited at the Saltpond Hospital.
The late Ekow Quansah Hayford was the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP’s) Parliamentary Candidate in the Mfantseman Constituency for the upcoming 2020 Election.
