The slain Member of Parliament (MP) for Mfantseman, Ekow Quansah Hayford will have his final funeral rites on November 27 to 29, 2020.
This was announced at the One Week observation which took place on Thursday, October 15, 2020, in the Central Region.
The deceased politician was shot on the Abeadze Dominase–Abeadze Duadzi–Mankessim Road after returning from a campaign trip on Friday, October 9, 2020. Apparently, the MP was not targetted as it was a robbery operation but when the late MP identified himself as a politician, they murdered him saying he’s the cause of all their woes.
This is what an eyewitness said;
When the robbers started engaging the MP, then he [robber] said, ‘You politicians have made the country very hard to live in.’ They brought all of us down and asked us to lie prostrate so we thought they were going to shoot us. One stated that we are not after your life…so they asked the driver why he didn’t stop when he was asked to.
