Three arrested over Eid-Fitr shooting incident

The three

The police have arrested and detained three men suspected to have shot and injured a 17-year old boy during this year’s Eid-Fitr festival at Manhyia in Kumasi.

Their names were given as Abdulai Umar, Suleiman Musah and Lawson Herbert Joli.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Ken Yeboah, the Ashanti Regional Commander, told a media briefing that they were seized at Salaga in the Northern Region.

He said the trio had confessed to the crime and claimed that the boy was only a victim of circumstance.

Their target was one Shatta, who had months before the event celebration engaged Musah in a scuffle.

Musah had reportedly bought the locally manufactured pistol, which was used to shoot at the victim from one Fuseini, now on the run at GH¢300.00.

DCOP Yeboah said the three rode on a motorbike to Manhyia Bonjour, where a group of Muslim youth, had gathered for a street jam to climax the celebration of the festival, expecting to see the said Shatta among them.

They opened fire on the celebrants, injuring the victim in the process.

They escaped on their motorbike, when they saw that somebody had taken a direct hit.

The three were arrested at Salaga, last week Thursday, July 20, where they had gone to carry out a robbery attack.

DCOP Yeboah said they were now assisting police investigations and would later be taken to Salaga to face other charges in the robbery case.

He confirmed that the injured boy was still on admission at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).
