23-year-old man shot dead few days after buying Range Rover
Kronum Abuohia in the Suame Municipality in the Ashanti Region
has been thrown into a state of shock after a 23-year-old man
was shot and killed at his rented apartment.
The deceased, identified as Akwasi Boakye, was reportedly shot
at close range after which his assailants fled the scene.
His attackers reportedly did not steal anything
from him after the gruesome act.
According to witnesses’ report, the unfortunate incident happened
on Wednesday, May 26, and so far no arrest
has been made by the security agencies.
Residents of Kronum Abuohia described the late Boakye as fabulously
rich and a kind-hearted person who was always willing to help
the less-privileged and those in need of financial assistance.
According to the residents, he was always seen sharply dressed
and lived an affluent lifestyle so they suspected that some of his
close friends might have carried out the attack possibly out
of jealousy or as a result of a business deal gone wrong.

The residents said Mr Boakye recently bought an expensive
new Range Rover and was killed just a few days after buying the car.
According to them, the fact that the killers did not take away
any valuable item or cash from the room
could be attributed to contract killing.
Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has since been deposited
at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue
in Kumasi as police hunt for the killers.
