A 40- year-old manager of Ecobank, Seth Akyea, has been shot dead by three unidentified persons at his residence at Kasoa.
Seth Akyea until his death was the Operations Manager at the Cantoments Branch of the bank. The incident occurred around 9.30 pm last Friday.
According to the Kasoa Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Samuel Winful, the deceased was killed when he arrived home from work at Kasoa New Market in the Central Region.
He said the deceased’s vehicle was taken from him and later abandoned.
“When he got home, he got down from the car and the suspects attacked him. They requested for his car keys. There was a lady in the car and the suspects asked her to go into the house. They marched the deceased to the passenger side and had a conversation with him where they shot him. And they took the car with them but the car has currently been retrieved. The murderers are three in all,” he said.
He added that it was too early to describe the incident as a contract killing and stated that investigations were ongoing.
“Now we cannot say it is contract killing and we are doing our investigations to unravel everything connected to the incident”, he added.
