Police grab ‘gun supplier’ in murder of NPP Treasurer

The night patrol team of the Western Regional Police Command has arrested a key suspect in efforts to smoke out the killers of New Patriotic Party (NPP) Treasurer of the Takoradi Constituency Mark Ofori.

The suspect, Anthony Mensah, was arrested on Sunday.

He is believed to have supplied the guns that were used to commit the crime.

In his late 30s, the suspect was arrested at Amanful around 8:00 pm following a tip-off.

A high-placed source told that Anthony Mensah attempted to bolt when he saw the police patrol team.

He was found fetching water from his residence, the source narrated, but immediately removed his clothes in an attempt to escape arrest.

It was raining so he thought he will be slippery, the source said, but the police overpowered him due to their number.

The police began investigations immediately after Mark Ofori was shot dead at his residence in Fijai in the Sekondi/Takoradi metropolis.

His laptop was taken away by the killers but other personal stuff were left untouched.

His murder happened in the wee hours of Wednesday, October 30.

It followed a similar attack on the residence of the in-law of the Western Region Minister, Kwabena Otchere Darko-Mensah, resulting in the death of the security man at post.
