I wanted to kill Mahama – Gunman confesses

The suspect who was arrested at the Ringway Assemblies of God church for carrying a loaded gun has confessed that he went there to kill President John Dramani Mahama.

He said this in court on Tuesday.

He told the court presided over by Justice Francis Obiri that he wanted to kill the President Mahama to take over his position.

The 36-year-old Charles Antwi was caught by a lady church member whilst reaching his pocket for the pistol.

President John Mahama and his family who worship at the Ringway Gospel Centre branch of the Assemblies of God Church were not in church that day, according to a statement from the Ministry of Communications.

Church members around confirmed the man wasn't a member of the church and nobody could identify him.

Apart from the first family, other key government officials including the Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Woode attend the same church.
