Property of the landlord believed to have murdered his tenant has been burnt down by some youth in his neighbourhood.

The two bedroom house located at Ofankor, in Accra, was set ablaze by angry youth who besieged the premises after the cold murder.

The destroyed property is the same house in which the deceased lived.

Out of frustration at the gruesome act, the youth who spoke to GhanaWeb said they ruined landlord Victor Stephen Nana Kankam’s house because they were pained by his inhumanity.

One of them who spoke off camera also said “when we got here, Victor Stephen Nana Kankam had gone into hiding. He does not live in the house that we burnt. He has purposely dedicated the house we burnt for rent. We went to his private residence so we could deal with him but he had also called his team to his rescue.”
