The Deputy Distribution Manager of the Ghana Water Company in charge of Accra East Region was murdered by unknown assailants while travelling to his hometown police earlier confirmed to this portal.

According to the family, Mr Joseph Migal Jinjel together with his wife and others were attacked by alleged armed robbers at Langbinsi or its suburb.
