The Swedru Divisional Police command has apprehended four armed men allegedly hired to kill the Member of Parliament for Agona West, Mrs. Cynthia Mamle Morrison.

The four, were among a group of five, who had lodged at the Elohim Hotel in Agona Swedru in the Central region, hatching how to execute their plot when the police pounced on them, angelonline.com.gh has gathered.

The fifth suspect absconded upon seeing the police.

Sources within the Regional Police Command said the suspect mentioned the name of the National Democratic Congress parliamentary candidate for Agona West, Paul Ofori Amoah, as the one who brought them to the area.

Paul Ofori Amoah was subsequently questioned on Saturday evening.

Though Mr. Amoah has admitted that he knew the suspects, he flatly denied claims that they were plotting to eliminate the sitting MP.

Meanwhile, police situation report gave the names of the four suspects as Saddick Abubakar, Gordon Kunya, Isaac Addea and Dauda Fatua.

Items found on them in the hotel rooms include knife, cutlass and two cheques in the sum of GH5000.00 each.

The report said the suspects have been “detained and exhibits retained for further action”.

This comes barely a week after the gruesome murder of the Member of Parliament for Mfantsiman, Ekow Quansah Hayford.

  1. No. This cant be true. it’s one of the failed Corrupt murderous Nana Addo’s means of witch hunting innocent opposition members.

    • See you there with a big mouth so we should wait till they finish doing the killings before is too late nonsense Kofi Boakye Wiedbaden-Germany 🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪

    • Are you blind and did you read what the police asked the ndc mp and he admitted he knows them so why insulting nana Addo ndc cup is full and their diabolic agenda is exposed God will judge them no matter what the ndc and John Mahama will still lose the election so if you are not happy go hug the transformer mtcheeee evil party

  2. Angelonline.com, you guys will land in trouble oo.
    Don’t add to the already insecurity of this country.
    Paul can never hurt a fly.
    I’ve spoken to him and I’m hoping he sues u.

  3. Angel you are loosing your reputation. Infact I am in Agona West and what you are saying is never true. The PC you are talking about is not remanded. You have to confirm first. Whoever wrote this article is an idiot.

  4. When evil men are arrested, its witch hunting for their allies. But if the police fail to arrest, they’re not doing their job well. If we’ll politicize everything, we will not accomplish anything as a nation.

  5. Hmmm the killing becoming too much in the country! When election is approaching, killings will pop up! And when Christmas 🎄 is coming, killing too will also pop up. Meaning when these two occasions happens to appear in one time then the intensity of the killing would be gruesome.

  6. God is not asleep you have wasted ur 4 year for nothing but create lout and share ,and now you want to use Voilence to come back?it will not work for you bloody man。
