The family of the slain Treasurer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Takoradi Constituency of the Western Region says they are appalled at the recent development in the case.
On Tuesday, a fake informant who accused another person wrongly of killing Mark Ofori was sentenced to six months imprisonment by the Takoradi Harbour Area Circuit Court, and fined GhS3, 000 cedis in addition.
Sister of the late Mark Ofori, Dillyx Ofori, tells Citi News that although they welcome the sentencing of the fake informant, they’re looking forward to the arrest of the assailant.
Some unknown persons shot the Takoradi NPP constituency treasurer in his house at Fijai last month.
The family said it suspects that the incident is a case of contract killing and has placed a GH¢50,000 bounty on the head of the unknown killer.
Police in the Western Region began investigating one Anthony Mensah, a resident of Amanful in Takoradi, suspected to have supplied the gun that was used to commit the crime.
But it later turned out that, the police were deceived.
