Man shoots nephew dead during bush hunting

Kwadwo Duku, believed to be in his late forties, has allegedly shot dead his nephew identified as Kennedy Asi during a bush hunting.

Information gathered by Adom News from an elder of the family, Abusuapanin Nana Yaw Kwakye suggested that the suspect fled to Côte d’Ivoire after committing the act on Friday.

“He called us from Côte D’Ivoire that he mistakenly shot Kennedy during hunting in the bush at night but due to fear for his life, he has left the town,” he narrated.

“We went to the crime scene on Sunday and saw the body in a decomposed state and after police inspection, we buried him at the Akrofro cemetery,” he added.

Meanwhile, Nana Kofi kumi, Akwamuhene of Akrofro said farmers with farms around the crime scene cannot access their lands until some rituals are performed to purify the land and pacify the gods.

The Police are yet to begin investigations to hunt down the suspect.
