An unidentified person on Saturday, May 22, 2021 shot the Headteacher of Ansapetu Basic School in the Central Region, Yaw Eyifa Gorman in the eye, killing him instantly.
Report says, Mr. Gorman was shot while he had parked his vehicle after returning from a census training workshop on Saturday, May 22, 2021.
A neighbour, Steven Essoun, told Citi Fm that the perpetrator did not burgle anything from the deceased.
“It happened around 7:45 pm when everyone was in their room. We heard the sound of his car when he arrived, and immediately we heard some unusual loud sound. We thought it was a burst tire or a knockout. Then we heard people shouting for help”.
Steven Essoun said residents came out of their homes only to find the deceased sitting in his vehicle unconscious with bullet wounds in his head.
According to reports, Yaw Eyifa Gorman had an argument centered on politics which resulted in one person being stabbed.
The deceased quickly left the scene so he would not be a victim of the chaotic situation of the argument but he was trailed by those he engaged in the arguments who allegedly shot him in the eye.
The headteacher was then rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Meanwhile, one person has been arrested by the Central Region Police command in connection to the killing of the headteacher on Saturday evening.
Police say the suspect is currently in custody assisting with investigations.
The body of the deceased has been deposited at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital morgue for autopsy.
