The Kasoa District Police Commander has confirmed the shooting of a Nigerian, known as Precious at Gomoa Buduburam in the Central Region.

Superintendent Samuel Odame in an interview with joy news Saturday said the shot was fired in an attempt to defend the patrol team on the ground from the victim.

Narrating the incident, he said the police received intelligence that a man in the procession of a cutlass had ran amok and was threatening to slash anyone who came his way.

Therefore, a patrol team was dispatched to engage him.

However, upon the encounter, Precious, now deceased pursued the officers and in their defence shot the man who subsequently died of the gunshot wound.

 

“The victim attacked my men with a machete. When the police officers got there, they wanted to talk to him to calm down but the Corporal who made that attempt was chased by the victim so my men had to run [for their lives].

“But the thing is, the shot was fired to disable him, it is just unfortunate that he passed on later. But the attempt was not to kill him, the attempt was to disable him,” he stressed.

Supt Odame however, refused to disclose where the bullet hit, explaining that, it could jeopardize the post mortem examination.

Despite the police’s explanation, the news of Precious’ death has caused an immense tension as an angry mob besieged the Gomoa Buduburam Police Station on Saturday morning.

According to Adom News’ Seth Ankomah Adjei, the Nigerian community is seeking answers as they do not understand why the man was shot to death.

 

They further accused the police of shooting Precious on purpose.

But, Kasoa Divisional Police Commander dispelled the allegation noting that such information is false.
