The Ahanta West District Police Command in the Western Region have arrested a farmer for killing his son at Ahuntumanu.
Speaking on Connect FM, assembly member for the area Stephen Ackah, said the suspect Uncle Awortwe, went berserk and shot his son, aged 25 after an argument, killing him instantly.
According to him, the deceased lived at Kwesimintsim in the Effia-Kwesimitsim Municipality and visited his father regularly in the Ahuntumanu community.
“The information I have gathered is that the son was 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 the son refused to change. 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”, Stephen Ackah narrated.
He added that members of the community heard gunshots and rushed to their house but only found the lifeless body of Ankoo in a pool of blood.
The Ahanta West District Police Command has since commenced investigations to unravel the circumstances that led to the unfortunate incident.
The body has however been deposited at the mortuary for autopsy.
