An unidentified man believed to be in his 40s was shot dead this morning by four armed men on a motorbike at Kasoa Opeikuma Junction in the Awutu Senya East Municipality.
According to an eyewitness, Madam Akuah Attah who sells local medicine at Opeikuma Junction, the man shot dead was holding a brown envelope which she believes contains money. The man was standing at the Opeikuma Junction bus stop waiting to board a car. The armed men attacked him, took the money and run away on their motorbikes.
She added that, the men had a short conversation with the victim before they shot him at a close range but because they were having gun people around couldn’t chase them.
The victim was rushed to Kasoa Polyclinic and later pronounced dead. The Kasoa District Police command is yet to comment about the incident whilst investigations are ongoing.
