Offuman youth demands justice for the death of 25yr old man

Information reaching the news desk of Ghanaweb.mobi from Offuman in the Techiman North District of the Bono East Region has it that, a 25-year-old young man, John Daizy has been shot dead.

According to our source, the unfortunate incident happened during a funeral at Jema in the Kintampo South District of the Bono East region on 4th February 2024 while some bodyguards of one Collins Ameyaw were firing musketry

Per our reports, the musketry was fired to usher in Collins Ameyaw bawuah (who claims to be the Paramount Chief of the Offuman Traditional Council) to the funeral grounds. In the process, one Peter Fordjour, a member of Collins Ameyaw’s bodyguards shot and killed John Daizy instantly.

It is said that the police moved in quickly to apprehend one Kwaku Gyamfi (one of the said bodyguards) whom they claimed to have killed John Daizy and has since been placed behind bars, a move some youth of Offuman believe it a coverup to get Peter Fordjour off the hook.

As a result of this incident, some youth of Offuman, are calling on the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, the Bono East Reginal Minister, Hon. Kwasi Adu Gyan, the Techiman North District Chief Executive, Hon. Addo Donkor Everson and the appropriate security agencies in charge of the place to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter and arrest the actual culprit.

According to information available to us, the youth strongly believes the guy currently behind bars for the said crime (Kwaku Gyamfi), is being used as a scapegoat and therefore demands the arrest of Peter Fordjour, whom they believe is the actual culprit of the crime to face the law at a competent court of law.

Our source revealed that, the mother of the deceased, Mad. Abiba Issaka, a resident of Offuman has been crying for justice for her departed son who happens to be her only child.

Other allegations, such as an attack on Nana Owusu nkwantabisa (Gyaasehene of the Offuman Traditional Area), causing a disturbance during the celebration of the Fofie yam festival on 8th September 2023 which was led by Nana Kwasi Ababio (Nyansu Chief Priest) and many others have been leveled against Mr. Collins Ameyaw Bawuah and her bodyguards.
