Members of a Concerned Zongo Youth in Kumasi have applauded the police for the swift action in arresting prime suspect in the killing of Asantehene’s sub-chief.
Mohammed Sadat, also known as Alhaji, was arrested last week in Burkina Faso over the death of Nana Kwadwo Afuduor.
At a press conference in Kumasi, the group said the Zongo community should not be tagged as a haven for criminals.
Spokesperson, Faisal Muniru, said rather, attention should be focused on the swift and professional manner the police apprehended the suspect.
The sentiments come ahead of a scheduled one-week observation of the late chief.
The brutal killing of 47 –year-old Oheneba Kwadwo Afoduor shocked the entire Ashanti Kingdom.
Weeks after police declared suspect Sadat wanted over the incident, he was arrested in Burkina Faso.
Police say he had hosted the late chief at his Odeneho Kwadaso residence on May 18, 2019, before the sub-chief was found dead on the Ejura –Nkoranza Road.
The group said the Zongo community will continue to work closely with the Asantehene to promote peace in the Ashanti region.
