Ruthless assailants

Hayford was shot dead on Friday 9 October, 2020 around 1am by suspected armed robbers. The incident happened on the Abeadze-Dominase Abeadze Duadzi -Mankessim road as he was returning from a campaign trip.

The assailants reportedly stopped the five-man travelling party and threatened them. Even though Hayford told them that he was a lawmaker, according to eyewitness account, they still went ahead and shot him.
