The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Samuel Nartey George has called for calm as Police investigate the gruesome murder of a family at Zutsukpo a village near Prampram on Thursday night.
The deceased, 50-year old Quao Omar, his wife, 40-year old Dally Tetteh, and their five-year-old child were shot before being set ablaze.
Although police are yet to ascertain what may have led to this ghastly act, Mr Nartey George blames it on possible land litigation between two families.
In a Citi News interview, the Ningo Prampram legislator asked aggrieved parties not to retaliate as the police work to bring the culprits to book.
“This homicide appears to be the culmination of a long-standing land dispute between members of the same large extended family. There have been checks previously even though investigations are ongoing, this is what we know at the moment. We are just asking for cool heads to prevail.”
“We are asking that nobody should try a reprisal attack. I am asking everybody to allow the Police to carry out their investigation. Let us trust the Police to conduct a swift investigation.”
Police in Ningo Prampram have begun investigations into the incident which led to the death of some three individuals.
According to reports, the couple and their 5-year old child were in their pickup truck double cabin when unknown persons shot and set their vehicle ablaze.
The Prampram Divisional Police Commander, ACP Dodzi Hlordzi, in a Citi News interview said that preliminary investigations show that the three were shot before being set on fire.
