The Takoradi Constituency Treasurer of the ruling NPP, Mark Ofori, has been shot dead.
Mr. Ofori was shot in his house at Fijai, a suburb of Sekondi in the Western region by some unknown assailants.
The development has thrown the party into a state of shock, grief and mourning as various social media platforms have been awash with condolences to the NPP and his relatives.
Empire News’ Emmanuel Ohene-Gyan reports that many party members are converging at the party office to mourn him as many were spotted wailing uncontrollably.
Close family members who spoke to Ohene-Gyan on condition of anonymity said his assailants took nothing from the house but went straight to Mr. Ofori’s room and took his life.
Police is yet to make arrest.
