Residents in the Kpone-Katamanso district of the Greater Accra Region were gripped with fear and panic, following shootings by landguards believed to be attached to Seth Classic and Engineering Limited, an estate developing company at Atadeka.

The landguards, purportedly armed to the teeth, were said to have vandalized properties and obstructed people from embarking on any developmental project on their lands, especially those belonging to ETODAD Company Limited at Apollonia, as they reportedly fired gunshots and engaged on robbery.

Four suspects have so far been arrested by the Tema Regional police in connection with the incident and identified as Kwarayile Kudumorow aka Kampala, 20, private security man; Manase Ofoe Amemador aka Abour, 35; Bouncer and Issah Iddrisu aka Rasta, 20, mechanic.

The suspects were said to be living in Ashaiman except one Kumah Frank aka De Gangster, 25, managing director of FA Global Estate, who lives at Zenu.

The suspected gangsters allegedly shot workers of ETODAD Company, injuring six, and were rushed to the Tema General Hospital where they were treated and some of them discharged.

Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Juliana Obeng, who confirmed the arrests to DAILY GUIDE, indicated that on Monday, October 17, 2015, one Devine Abladey employed the victims – Nurudeen Binga, Richard Tetteh, Ibrahim Osman, Ifanyo Ibrahim, Mohammed Ibrahim, Ibrahim Abubakar and Musah Osman – to work on his land.

While working, the accused persons and others who are now at large, wielding AK 47 assault rifles, pump action guns, machetes and clubs, with the aid of Seth Kwame Sallah – their purported leader – stormed the site and began firing indiscriminately without any provocation and thereafter, robbed them of five motorbikes, cash and phones.

ASP Juliana Obeng indicated that the police were hunting for those who escaped arrest, including the Chief Executive Officer of Setho Classic Company and Engineering Limited.
