Ghana police kill five suspects in foiled murder plot against local chief

Ghana police have foiled a plot by gunmen to murder the chief of Gomoa Fetteh, a community in the Central Region, local media reported as concerns grow over a long-standing chieftaincy dispute in that area.

The armed men who were allegedly on a mission to assassinate the Chief of Gomoa Fetteh, Nana Abor Attah, were in a taxi with registration number GG 3427-21, reported Citi FM.

Upon a tipoff, they were accosted by the Anti-robbery unit of the police service who engaged the seven-member gang in a gun battle. Five of the suspects were killed while two managed to escape, locals told dailymailgh.com.

Nana Abor Attah who commented shortly on the latest incident said: “I was at the Palace when I heard gunshots. I initially thought it was some persons firing crackers, only to realise it was a gun battle between police and some persons who have been sent to kill me and my Abusuapanyin. We initially picked intelligence, but we didn’t take it seriously until it happened.”

“But I was taken through the proper process, of ascending the throne”, the traditional ruler insisted, adding: “I want to thank the police for the swift response in saving my life”.

The police administration was yet to brief the media on the development.
