The police in Tema are on a manhunt to identify and arrest the persons involved in the murder of Felix Tetteh Batcha, a car dealer.

Batcha was shot by assailants around Bampo Hotel, Tema, on Monday 25 April 2022.

According to a statement by the police, “Preliminary investigations indicate that at 2 pm on Monday 25 April 2022, the deceased who was a car dealer at Community 9, received a call from a man who expressed an interest in buying one of the cars he was selling. The prospective buyer introduced himself as a doctor at the Community 22 Polyclinic.”

“When the car dealer arrived at the Polyclinic, the supposed doctor claimed he was busy at the surgical theatre and therefore sent one of his boys to go on a test drive with the deceased…”

The statement added: “When they got to a spot around Bampo Hotel, the test driver stopped and got down under the pretext of making a phone call. Some minutes later, three men emerged on a motorbike, attempted to forcibly collect the ignition key from the deceased and in the ensuing struggle, shot him.”

The police say the vehicle has been recovered and the anti-robbery task force is working to get the perpetrators arrested.
