The Police in Takoradi have mounted a search for the assailants who murdered the Takoradi Constituency treasurer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mark Ofori at his residence in Fijai Wednesday, ABC News can report.

ABC News has gathered that the police has already commenced investigations into the matter with a team of investigators visiting the house of the deceased Wednesday morning as part of processes to trace the assailants.

The Police is yet to officially brief the media on the matter, but reports indicate that the Police have reportedly retrieved a gun believed to have been used by the assailant for the operation.

According to reports, the unidentified assailant, after shooting the NPP treasurer, engaged in  scuffle with the brother of the deceased during which he bolted away, leaving the said gun behind.

It was gathered that the unknown assailants reportedly attempted to shoot the brother of the deceased but ran out of bullets, resulting in the scuffle.

Mark Ofori, a father of three, was attacked and shot dead by some unknown assailants in his house at Fijai in the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolis in the Western Region around 1:00 a.m Wednesday.

Reports suggest that the assailants first raged the house of the in-law of the Western Regional Minister, Kobby Okyere Darko-Mensah and shot and killed the security guard there before proceeding to the house Mr Ofori to terminate his life.

The remains of the deceased has been deposited at the Effia Nkwanta Hospital in Takoradi while the his brother, who reportedly sustained injuries is responding to treatment at the same hospital.

Some residents say the armed men did not take anything from the house of the treasurer after killing him, which makes them suspect it to be a case of “contract killing.”

Other reports however suggest that the treasurer’s laptop was taken away by the perpetrators, leaving behind all other valuables.
