The Ghana Police Service has announced a reward of $100,000 for anyone with information that will help identify and apprehend those responsible for the recent killings in Wa.
It comes after one suspect, Kankani Adongo, was previously detained and is still being held in custody to help with investigations.
According to a police update released on Tuesday, it’s probable that other persons are involved in criminal activity; as a result, people shouldn’t be reluctant to collaborate and provide any information to help apprehend the killers who are still at large.
