The Police in Abuakwa Koforidua in the Eastern Region have arrested a sub-chief in relation with the shooting of another chief in the area, Nana Adusa Gyapong. The deceased was reportedly shot and killed by some unknown assailants on Monday at his construction site in the town.

Confirming the news on Accra-based Citi FM, the Abuakwa Police Commander, Superintendent Joseph Anyaaba, said the suspect, Nana Sanaahene of Abuakwa Koforidua was arrested in the early of hours of Tuesday and is currently assisting the Police with investigations.

“We have arrested Nana Sanaahene also known as Nana Kwaku Nkrumah. Through our own intelligence, we arrested  him at Abuakwa around 10: 00 oclock. We are aware there is a land dispute at Koforidua but we don’t want to concentrate on that assumption…,” Supt. Anyaaba added.

Superintendent Joseph Anyaaba said the area is now safe and secure because of frequent day and night patrols the police are engaging in.

Meanwhile, the country has witnessed several chieftaincy disputes across the country which have led to the death of several people and division among various ethnic groups. The Bimbilla Chief, Naa Adasani and five others were murdered in clashes that hit the town in June. Bawku, Nkonya and other areas have had curfews imposed on them for months as a result of these protracted conflicts.
