The Member of Parliament for the Mfantseman Constituency, Ekow Quansah Hayford has been reportedly shot dead by alleged highway robbers.
According to Peace FM correspondent in the Central Region, Ibrahim Dadzie, he was shot while returning from a campaign trip.
The robbers according to the report shot the driver of his car after he refused to stop when they signalled him to.
They then reportedly dragged the MP out of the car and started questioning him.
The MP identified himself but that reportedly annoyed them as one of the robbers blamed him for inflicting hardship on his constituents.
He was then shot twice; on his back and side, leading to his untimely demise.
The MP was accompanied by a First Vice Chairman and three others who were left unharmed.
