“The name of the deceased is being withheld until his family is formally notified of his demise, in line with our standard operating procedure and in respect for Ghanaian tradition,” the statement said.

The suspect is in custody and will be arraigned in court.

“The manhunt for the remaining suspects has also been intensified and we will surely get them arrested,” the police added.
