Kumasi Shooting: Driver Commits Suicide After Shooting Man Three Times


As we drive towards the election month, point and kill has also become rampant among the Ghanaian citizens thereby recording another shooting incident that happened at Tech-Ayeduase, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region on Tuesday morning.

According to eye witness, the deceased (private KIA saloon driver) first argued with a lady driver whiles they were all in traffic and pulled the gun from his car, an okada rider (Aboboyaa operator) tried to prevent the man (KIA saloon driver) from the shooting and was fired three times at a close range.

It is unclear whether the (KIA saloon driver) meant to shoot the lady with the gun or not. However, the (Aboboyaa) operator was shot three times in the stomach.

Shortly after the incident, residents around started confronting the suspect but he shot himself in the head and died on the spot.

Dead body of the suspect has been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue pending autopsy while the Police who are investigating the matter are yet to speak. Meanwhile, the Okada rider is currently in critical condition and receiving treatment at a health facility.

The assembly member for Ayeduase, Kotei Twumduase Electoral Area Justice Attobrah who confirmed the unfortunate incident said:

“there was a misunderstanding between two drivers at Ayeduase drivers which resulted in fighting between the two drivers”

“One guy called Amoah attempted to separate the fight but one angry driver entered his car and shot our brother Amoah after he (the driver) directed his anger at him. He shot himself dead when he saw a police vehicle coming to the scene”.
