The Assembly Member for Aboaso Electoral Area in the Kwabre East Municipality of the Ashanti region, Mr. Nurain Mohammed has given the assurance the community will assist the police to arrest the youth who were involved in the murder of a 40-year-old mechanic, Akwasi Owusu.
While condemning the incident, Mr. Mohammed told Class 93.1 FM’s Elisha Adarkwah that they have resolved to arrest and hand over the perpetrators of the crime if found and identified in the community.
Some feuding youth from the community clashed with a faction from Hemang during a ceremony at a guest house in Sarfo, a suburb in Kwabre on Saturday, May 7, 2022.
The victim who was returning from a funeral from Wiamoase the next day was allegedly ambushed by some youth from Aboaso about 500 meters away from Hemang.
They allegedly attacked, butchered, and stabbed him several times.
He was rushed to the Ankaase Methodist Hospital for medical treatment but died on arrival.
The police have since arrested two suspects in connection with the murder.
Mr. Nurain said they have planned to set up a watchdog committee as part of measures to fight against the insurgent activities of some of the youth in the community.
He also pleaded with the regional police command to mount a barrier in the community if not to eradicate and minimize such incidence of clashes in the two areas.
