The mother of the murdered NPP MP for the Mfantseman Constituency in the Central Region, Quansah Hayford, has mourned his death in deep agony.
Madam Meba Aba Attah, 80 years, has said though she is alive, she feels the very life in her has been snuffed away.
She has mourned the cruel murder of her only son on whom she depended for her everything than the air she breathes. Now that he is no more, Madam Aba Attah has wondered how she is going to face the life ahead.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Graphic.com.gh.
According to the report, the mother said she does not know how she is going to survive physically and emotionally following the death of her 49-year-old son.
She said she is not only confused about the death but also confused and pained about the way and manner in which her son was killed.
“I have been maimed, I have been killed earlier than my time even though I am still alive. Who did this to us? What did we do to deserve this?” Madam Attah said amid sobs.
She and the rest of the family called on the police to expedite investigations to unravel what seems to be a mystery surrounding the death of their son.
The family is also calling for the arrest and justice for their son once the killers are apprehended.
Meanwhile, the MP was allegedly shot by the armed robbers on the Nkusukum Mankessim-Abeadze Duadze road around 1 at midnight on his return from a campaign tour.
He was said to have begged his assailants when they attacked him, indicating that he was an MP, but they went ahead and shot him.
The robbers were reported to have said: “You people make the work difficult” before unleashing the gun on him.
The attack left four others injured; two with gunshot wounds, including the driver of the MP, who died later on after admission at the hospital.
As a first time MP, he served on the Judiciary Committee as well as on the Defence and Interior Committee.
Ekow Quansah Hayford was married with four children.
