THE ASHANTI Regional Police Command has declared wanted a suspected  criminal called Bonty Killer, alias ?Wunda? or ?Hyundai Guy,? who is said to have killed one Kwame Antwi at Ash Town, a suburb of Kumasi, last weekend.

Bonty Killer, according to the police, has fled Kumasi and is currently hiding in Accra.

Three other people have also been placed on the police wanted list in relation to the death of Antwi. They are Kwame Sasraku, a goldsmith apprentice at Ash Town, Nana Yaw, aka ?West? or ?Terrible? and Dragno.

Any person that would feed the police with vital information that would lead to the arrest of the wanted persons would be rewarded GH?2,000, DCOP Kofi Boakye, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, announced.

He said at a media briefing in Kumasi yesterday that the deceased, who was a security man at C Woemann Company Limited at Asokwa, was shot in the head at close range by Bonty Killer, who was wielding a locally manufactured pistol.

The Ashanti Regional Police Commander ruled out any gang war in the shooting to death of Antwi, stating that police investigations had revealed that it was just ?opportunistic shooting or pure murder.?

Throwing more light on the sad death of the security man, the police chief said around 5:30 pm on May 15, Antwi and his friends, Richard Owusu, Richard Wiafe, Patrick Sarpong and Kofi Kwarteng, went to a ?pito? (locally brewed non-alcoholic beverage) drinking bar at Ash Town to while away the time.

Just after they had left the drinking bar, DCOP Boakye said, Antwi and his friends were accosted by two young men from another drinking spot called ?Sweet Mother,? and suddenly attacked the deceased and his friends.

He said five other people with the two young men, including Kwame Sasraku, also joined in the assault and in the process, Bonty Killer shot Antwi in the head.
