Chief killed by unknown gunman at Tain

The Gyaasehene of Seikwa Traditional Area in the Tain District, Nana Kwadwo Tando Naase, was on Thursday evening shot dead by an unknown person in his living room at Seikwa.

The Brong Ahafo Region’s Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Chief Inspector  Augustine Kingsley Oppong, said that on February 8, 2018, at about 7pm Nana Naase, aged 65 had a telephone call whilst watching television in his living room with two women.

He said the chief went out briefly to receive the call and on his return to the living room, he was shot in the head through the window, killing him instantly.

Chief Inspector Oppong said one of the two women who was watching the television with Nana Naase, Fati Musa, was also shot in both of her thighs but her colleague, Margret Agyapong managed to escape from the room and started shouting for help.

According to the Chief Inspector, people rushed to the scene but the assailant was nowhere to be found and the matter was reported to the Seikwa Police.

Police Inspector Oppong stated that Fati was rushed to Seikwa Hospital for treatment, adding that she was responding to treatment, whilst the body of the chief has been conveyed to the Sunyani Government Hospital mortuary, pending an autopsy.

He said Police suspected it was a planned attack because Nana Kwaku Dwuma Ankoana, the late paramount chief of the area died four years ago in the same mysterious manner over which some arrests were made.

Chief Inspector Oppong said the situation could be related to chieftaincy issues in the town and cautioned other chiefs in the region to arrange for guards to protect them.

He said no arrest has been made but stated that there was a heavy Police presence in the town to protect lives and properties.

Chief Inspector Oppong urged residents of Seikwa to remain calm and allow the Police to proceed with their investigations.
