The Landlord who has been arrested for allegedly murdering his tenant with an AK47 has told the Police he was forced to shoot the deceased in self-defence.
Victor Stephen Kankam who is 38 years old was arrested by the Police for shooting his tenant with an AK47 rifle.
The incident happened at Ofankor in the Ga North Municipality on 24th May 2020 when the landlord stormed the residence to demand that the now deceased tenant hand over his keys to him.
When Benjamin Otchere, 31, who was a musician in the area came out of the Chamber and Hall room which rent was due to expire on the midnight of the said date to explain things to him, the Landlord who was armed with an AK47 shot him at close range.
In a statement to the Police, Kankam said he was forced to shoot Otchere in self-defence.
“He said he put on the bulletproof vest in self-defence and that he was forced to shoot the guy in self-defence because the deceased had threatened him once…,” Mile 7 Police Commander, ASP George Asare said.
