GBA Places GH¢20K Bounty For Info On Killers Of Lawyer Badombie
The Ghana Bar Association (GBA) has expressed deep worry about the increase in armed robbery and other violent crimes in the country.
The GBA urged “relevant security agencies to conduct swift and thorough investigations of the incident to identify the perpetrators of this heinous crime and bring them to face the full rigors of the law,” referring to last Saturday’s incident in which a lawyer, Richard Badombie, was reportedly attacked and killed by suspected highway robbers.
The GBA announced in a press statement dated Monday, May 30, 2022, jointly signed by Yaw Acheampong Boafo, President, and Kwaku Gyau Baffour, Secretary, that it was willing to offer a reward of GH20,000 to anyone who will volunteer credible information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.
“The GBA stands ready and prepared to give a reward of Twenty Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH¢20,000.00) to anyone who volunteers credible and legitimate information that will lead to the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators of the crime. The GBA would like to assure its entire membership that the Association will do everything within its power to ensure the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators of this abominable crime,” it said.
On the Bole-Bamboi route in the Savannah Region, suspected armed robbers attacked a vehicle and shot the driver dead on Saturday.
Richard Badombie, an Accra lawyer, has been named as the deceased.
He was said to be traveling with some relatives to Jirapa in the Upper West Region.
The police are looking for the suspected robbers who attacked the vehicle on Saturday on a stretch of road between Banda Nkwanta and Nuoyiri.
