One issue making rounds since last Saturday is the shooting incident in Ofankor where a landlord identified as Victor Stephen Kankam shot his tenant, Benjamin Otchere with AK47, killing him instantly.
From earlier reports; the landlord had requested that his tenant, Benjamin vacate his premises the same day his rent expired.
According to the Police, the story is still not clear as Victor Stephen Kankam keeps giving them different stories.
The Mile 7 District Police Commander, DSP George Asare in an interview with Kwame Sefa Kayi on Peace FM disclosed that sources in the area have revealed to them that the landlord was a womanizer.
“You know in cases like this, police open our ears very wide, so information reaching us is that the landlord was a womanizer. Another lady also confirmed that indeed, he is into lots of women. The landlord told the tenant that he likes a certain woman who he was very ‘free’ with, so he (the deceased) should ‘link’ him to the girl”. He narrated
“The deceased agreed to connect the two of them, and the girl, with assistance from the deceased, spent lots of the landlord’s money; that is why he even decided not to extend his rent by one year as earlier agreed and insisted that he moved out that very day; upon careful reflections on all the accounts, this one sounds more tenable”. He added
