Investigations are underway into circumstances that led to the death of a 28-year-old man who was allegedly stabbed by men suspected to be supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at Banda in the Bono region
Silas Wulochamey, a new graduate from Akim Oda Teacher Training College, was allegedly accosted by the men at Banda Kabrono on Monday when he was returning from a visit to his pastor at Wenchi Methodist.
The deceased is said to be an apolitical person but was mistaken to be a member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Micah Perdjo, the younger brother of the deceased, who brought him to the Wench Methodist Hospital told Joy News, his brother died around 6:am on Tuesday without saying a word to him.
“The wound was deep and he was bleeding and in pain, so he couldn’t say anything to me. The doctors did their best but they said the knife would had affected his lungs and there was not much they could do when he was brought to the hospital,” he said.
The Regional Public Relations Officer (PRO), of the Bono Regional Police Command, Augustine Kingsley Oppong, said they will conduct thorough investigations before making any arrest.
“We have decided to let our investigator go down and gather all the pieces of information and inform Command as such. So we’ve not made any arrest yet. Our investigator will inform us of the next action we should take. People are asking whether there have been any arrest and why not now. In fact, we are gathering intelligence that will lead us to the right culprits so that we will not go and arrest some people and later release them that there is nothing against them.”
