In a tragic incident, Sergeant Amoah Moses of the Ashanti Regional Police headquarters was shot dead by unknown assailants in the Bobiri Forest Reserve near Ejisu, specifically in Kubease.

The shocking discovery was made following a report from Caleb Adu Agyemang, the Assemblyman of Kubease Electoral Area, who came across the lifeless body of a man believed to be in his 30s on Tuesday, May 14, 2024.

Additionally, a single-barrel gun and a machete were discovered beside him in the forest reserve.

Upon receiving the report, officers from the Ejisu District Police headquarters, led by DSP Patrick Okai Kodjoe, the District Commander, along with ASP Hannah Amoafo the District Crime Officer, joined forces with the Ashanti Regional Crime Scene Management Team, led by DSP Francis Nimoh. They quickly responded to the scene of the crime to commence investigations.
