Rawlings offers GH¢25,000 bounty on Sogakofe Assemblymember killers

Former President Jerry John Rawlings is offering an amount of GH¢25,000 cedis to anyone that will provide relevant information which will lead to the arrest of the killers of the Assemblymember for Sogakope, Marcus Adzahli who was murdered last Sunday.

The amount is also directed to persons who will provide reliable information of those who committed another violent robbery in Vume, also in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region about a month ago.

However, the Volta Regional Minister, Mr Archibald Letsa and the assembly had earlier offered 10,000 cedis each intended for the same purpose.

A statement issued by the Office of the former President quotes him as expressing disgust at the trend of violent attacks in the South Tongu area, describing the killing of the Assemblymember as a politically related murder.

Flt Lt Rawlings urged the residents to exercise their right to anger and protest, but not to express their anger in the wrong direction or through the wrong action.
