Staff Sergeant Nuamah Jonathan, bearing service number 198-857, and a group of individuals faced a harrowing assault during their journey from Assin Fosu to Assin Assaman in the Central Region. The military officer, who also holds the esteemed positions of Chief of Assin Assaman and Kyidomhene of Efutuakwa Traditional Area, goes by the name Nana Obrempong Nkansah III. Accompanying him was his Queen mother, Nana Brefuaa III, and others after attending a family gathering.
Their convoy was abruptly intercepted by a gang led by a self-proclaimed Chief, who happened to be a police officer. Disturbingly, without any discernible cause, the group subjected the occupants to a brutal and unprovoked assault. An eyewitness account revealed that the police officer in question, identified as Alex Nsiah, and his associates were armed with both small and large firearms as well as handcuffs. In a shocking statement, he threatened that the situation could have been even deadlier if it had occurred at night.
The victims are now urgently seeking intervention from the Assin Fosu police commander, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), the President, and the Regional House of Chiefs. They implore these authorities to thoroughly investigate the matter and ensure that justice is promptly served. Their concern is that the precarious situation could jeopardize the peace in Assin Fosu.
Despite having reported the incident to the police, no arrests have been made thus far.
