One more person has also passed on in the gun attack that led to the death of MP for Mfantseman Ekow Quansah Hayford.
The victim, whose name has been given as Yusif died late Friday afternoon, according to the communications director of the NPP in Mfantseman, Dr. Nana Yaw Agyenim-Boateng.
The deceased was driving the late MP at the time the incident occurred.
“They [colleagues at the Saltpond District Hospital] just called us and the doctor also confirmed that the man has passed on this afternoon”, he told the CNR.
The late MP died after sustaining gunshot wounds during an attack on the Abeadze Dominase-Abeadze Duadzi-Mankessim road Friday.
He was returning from a campaign trip when the incident occurred.
Dr. Agyenim-Boateng who was traveling with the MP also recounted his ordeal.
He told the CNR that: “Every car at that particular joint was stopped and Ekow Quansah Hayford was shot, together with his driver, Ekow Quansah Hayford died on the spot and the driver also passed one between 3:30 and 4:00 this evening”.
Ekow Quansah is a former police officer and Dr. Agyenim-Boateng said he was quite security conscious.
“When it comes to security and other things, I think he was a little bit abrest with it [security arrangements] but nobody knows how the whole thing [escalated].”
He further called on police to react positively to this incident.
“We just want them to tighten the security for us so Ghana will be a safe country for all of us,” he said.
