The Ahanta West District Police Command in the Western Region has detained a farmer in his late 40s for shooting his biological son to death at Ahuntumanu.
According to 3FM, following an argument, the suspect, identified as Uncle Awortwe, went berserk and shot his son, whose name has been given as Ankoo, 25, killing him instantly.
Assembly member for the area, Stephen Ackah, confirmed the incident and told Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the host of Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning, how the suspect was killed.
He claimed that the deceased frequented his father’s home in the hamlet of Ahuntumanu while residing in Kwesimintsim in the Effia-Kwesimitsim Municipality.
“The information I have gathered is that the son who is now deceased has become a burden to his father due to his bad attitude. He lives in Kwesimintsim and whenever he visits his father, he steals almost everything in the house and sells them.”
“His father has been complaining on several occasions but he is not changing his bad attitude. So it is alleged that he came to visit his father and exhibited a similar attitude, this time, he wanted to take his hunting gun away. His father got frustrated and shot him,” he indicated.
He adds that members of the community heard gunshots and rushed to the scene but it was too late.
“They heard gunshots and rushed to their house, but they only found the lifeless body of Ankoo in a pool of blood. He was already dead,” he added.
The Ahanta West District Police Command has since commenced investigations into the unfortunate incident.
