The Ghana Police Service says it has arrested five persons in connection with the murder of the MP for Mfantseman, Ekow Quansah Hayford.

Although details of the five suspects remain scanty, available information indicates that there is a manhunt for other suspects in connection with the crime.

Mr. Hayford was shot and killed after his car was attacked on the Nkusukum Mankessim-Abeadze Duadze road in the Central Region.

Eyewitnesses say the suspected armed robbers numbering about six shots at the MP’s vehicle when his driver attempted to drive away from the robbery operation.

After the car stopped, the driver was shot by the armed robbers to serve as a deterrent to others who might try to escape.

The MP is alleged to have confirmed his identity to the robbers when asked who the MP of the constituency was. He was then shot twice, resulting in his death.
