Jirapa ‘Dubai’ CEO Murder: GH¢100k bounty placed on killers – MP<span class="wtr-time-wrap after-title"><span class="wtr-time-number">1</span> min read</span>

Jirapa Member of Parliament (MP), Cletus Dapilah, has placed a GH¢100,000 bounty on the heads of the killers of Eric Johnson, the Chief Executive Officer of the Royal Cosy Hills Hotel (Jirapa Dubai) in the Upper West Region.
The lifeless body of the respected businessman was found in a pool of blood in his room on the hotel premises on Sunday, February 11.
Police have so far arrested seven people in connection with the murder.

According to Mr Dapilah, the sole aim of Eric Johnson was to make the Upper West region more appealing to travellers to drive tourism revenue mobilisation.
He emphasized that if such a man with good intentions is murdered, it must be all hands on deck to unravel the identity of the killers and bring them to book.
“The kind of investments that he made in Jirapa were to create jobs for the people, which he actually did. He was able to create over 300 direct jobs for people he pays every month, and his aim was to also open up the Upper West region to the world because most people often complained that the place is far.

So, he developed the tourism sector in the region to make it attractive to visitors. Therefore, if such a person is murdered, all of us have to come on board to help find the murderers. That is why I placed this handsome bounty on the table for anyone who will give credible information leading to the arrest of the murderers,” said Mr Dapilah in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM.

Meanwhile, five out of the seven suspects arrested have been granted bail on Thursday, February 15.
