The Apremdo community in the Effia Kwesimintsim Municipality in the Western Region was thrown into a state of shock Sunday night following the alleged shooting of a woman by the boyfriend of her daughter.

According to eye witness Adu, who spoke to Connect FM‘s morning show host Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the suspect, who is known as Emmanuel Kwame Kwoffie, popularly known as “Kilo”, shot the woman known as Aunty Beyaw due to her opposition to the relationship between her daughter, Kyerewa, and him.

He is said to have eventually stabbed himself to death.

Kwame, who recently returned from Italy just about two months ago, was denied access to meeting the girlfriend, who he has a child with before travelling.

“It is feared that Kwame stormed the house of the girl on Sunday evening around 9:00pm and enquired about her, but he was prevented to see her which led to a confrontation leading to the shooting of the Kyerewa’s mother by Kwame,” the eye witness said.

According to the eyewitness, after he shot and killed the woman, he pulled a dagger and stabbed his abdomen, dying shortly after being admitted at Effia Nkwanta Government hospital. 

So far both bodies have been deposited at the morgue of Dr. Mensah Hospital while investigation continues.
