His remains have been deposited at the morgue pending autopsy. Management of Success FM confirmed the incident to Starrfmonline.com.

The General Manager of Success FM Asafo Agyei said: "The crime officer told us there was a cocoa purchasing clerk who went to withdraw money and robbers were trailing him… my reporter was coming from Kwapong on a motor bike and when they saw him they thought it was the clerk and shot him at close range."
