Those who advocated for his release were bashed.

Information shared Monday by Shatta Wale’s accomplices, Nana Dope and Deportee alleged that Shatta Wale was gunned down by some unknown assassins in East Legon and was rushed to an unknown hospital emergency room.

The police in a statement said all attempts to locate the hospital in which Shatta Wale was reportedly admitted proved futile.
