The Minister of Defence, Dominic Nitiwul has announced a GHc 10,000 reward for anyone with information leading to the arrest of the killers of a woman in the Bimbilla township.
The 40-year-old woman was shot dead Tuesday after some sporadic gunfire in the town. Her 14-year-old daughter was injured in the process.
Speaking on Accra-based Citi FM, the Minister who is also the Member of Parliament for Bimbilla said: “Because of the troubles in that area, I think some people keep some ammo in places they shouldn’t keep [it]. So when the fire hit it the ammo started exploding so people thought it was gunfire and in the process, somebody actually went to murder that woman.”
“I am saying to the security agencies that you should do everything and anything possible under the sun. In fact, I am pledging GHc 10000 of my personal money… if somebody can give information to get the perpetrator of the heinous crime, I will give the person GHc 10, 000.
“That woman should not have been murdered. She has not committed any crime. She has done nothing for somebody to just go and murder her in cold blood for no reason. I think that was callous,” he said.
Meanwhile, police in Bimbilla have begun investigations into the incident.
