A former headteacher of the Bantama SDA Primary School in the Sene West District in the Bono East Region has been shot and killed by suspected armed robbers on the Bantama Kwame Danso road.
The teacher, Elijah Asante, who was one of the enumerators for the 2021 Population and Housing Census met his untimely death on his way home from an ongoing workshop for field officers in the District capital.
The incident occurred on Thursday evening at about 7:00pm.
Speaking to JoyNews’ Anass Sabit, brother of the deceased, Enoch Asante, said that at the time his brother was stopped, the robbers had asked some passengers from another vehicle they had stopped to lie down.
“He was on a motorbike, so they stopped him too. After stopping him, we were not there, but what we heard was that there was a gunshot and one person was dead. So they reported it to the police, they rushed to the scene and picked the body to the hospital.”
He stated that some relatives who saw the motorcycle, at the police station where it had been sent to aid in the investigation, informed the family.
