Man shot dead in Upper Denkyira

A young man has been shot dead in the troubled Upper Denkyira West District in the Central region.

The body of the deceased was found at Modaso, a farming community near Denkyira Obuasi.

The body has since been sent to the Diaso hospital for autopsy.

The MP for the area Hon. Samuel Djan who confirmed the incident in an interview with a local radio station in the area further observed that five people have been arrested in connection of the murder of Captain Maxwell Mahama.

This comes barely a week after a Captain in the Ghana Armed Forces,  was brutally murdered in the area.

The ghastly killing of Captain Mahama of the 5 Infantry Battalion at Burma, Camp on detachment duties at Denkyira Obuasi in alleged case of mistaken identity drew wide condemnation across the country with President Akufo-Addo vowing to ensure that those culpable face the full rigour of the laws of the country.

So far, seven people have been arrested in connection with the dastardly act—as the military High Command is expected to hold a crunch meeting with all its officers following the death of the young officer.
