Source The Ghana Report

A man, only identified as Sammy, has allegedly killed his wife’s brother at Mampong Akuapim in the Eastern Region.

The incident happened at dawn on Friday, April 5, 2024, at the family house where the two lived.

According to reports, the victim was sleeping on a bed on the compound of the house due to the heat in his room when Sammy allegedly shot him.

The victim’s young son, who was in the house, witnessed the shooting.

When the suspect noticed his presence, he warned him to leave the scene quietly, or he would shoot him as well.

However, the boy raised an alarm, attracting the attention of some residents, who called the police.

Although the police responded on time, the victim was already dead when they arrived.

The police have since taken the suspect into custody and launched a hunt for his wife, who fled the house after the shooting.

Meanwhile, some residents told reporters that the incident followed a series of misunderstandings between the brothers-in-law.

Such incidents are not uncommon.

Eleven months ago, a 39-year-old man identified as Selorm Ayi also killed his brother-in-law at Pusupu in Nkwanta South of the Oti region.

After committing the crime, the suspect rushed to the Breweniase Police Station to report himself.

Residents revealed the suspect had been battling mental illness, and the deceased tried to send him to a fetish priest for treatment.
