The attackers of the Assemblyman refused to accept an offer of ¢30,000 (thirty thousand cedis) from the victim's wife in a plea to save his life, insisting money was not the reason for the attack. They subsequently snatched the money only after they had shot, stabbed and killed Adzahli.

The wife, sister, and child of the deceased who were also injured in the attack are on admission at the District Hospital.

The victim of the Vume attack a month ago is currently on admission at the Dzodze Hospital.
