Man robbed and shot dead at Atonsu

A 36-year-old man has been robbed and shot dead at Atonsu in Kumasi.

Maxwell Awetor, a resident of Ahinsan Estate, is said to have made an unknown transaction in the area.

He decided to visit a friend at a house which was 100 metres away from the crime scene.

Eyewitnesses said they spotted two men on a motorbike arriving at the house.

One of the suspected robbers spotting a black T-shirt with camouflage shorts followed the deceased. Then a loud gunshot sound was heard.

The suspected assailant jumped on the waiting motorbike with a brown envelope and the two sped off.

Mr Awetor was found in a pool of blood with a bullet wound on his neck.

The body has been deposited at the Kumasi South Hospital mortuary while the police begin investigations.
