A/R: Asawase Salafest shooting: Culprits arrested

The Manhyia Divisional Police Command has arrested three suspects for their involvement in shooting one Osman Addulai Karim during a street Jam at Manhyia Bonjour on the night of Tuesday June 27, 2017 after the Eid Fitir Festivities.

It would be recalled that on that night, a group of Muslim Youth were having fun during a street jam at the Manhyia Bonjour when some unidentified young men on motorbike stormed the place and fired a locally manufacture pistol at the celebrants hitting one of them in the head and sped off after the act.

The suspects are Suleman Musah 19 years, Abdulai Umar 18 years and Lawson Hubert Joli 19 years.

Ashanti Regional Police Commander DCOP Ken Yeboah addressing the media said all the three suspects after the incidents went into hiding after the act until their arrest.

DCOP Ken Yeboah added that after their arrest, Suleman Musah confessed to Police to have personally shot victim Abdul Karim in the head with a locally made pistol.

He confessed to have bought the pistol from one Fuseni now at large at a cost of Three Hundred Ghana Cedis (GHC300) which he used to commit the crime.

Suleman Musah however indicated to Police that a scuffle has earlier ensued between him and one Shatta a couple of months before the incident at Bonjour and that he bought the pistol to attack Shatta in revenge when he got information that he would be at the street jam organized after Eid festivities.

But he rather shot Abdul Karim.

All the three suspects are in police custody assisting in investigation whilst efforts are are being made to arrest suspect Fuseni to also assist in investigation.
