A disagreement among Chinese nationals at a gambling table at China-Town, Wassa-Akropong in the Wassa Amenfi East District of the Western Region, has cost two lives while another is in critical condition.
A Chinese man who remains unidentified has shot three of his compatriots leaving two confirmed dead in the Wassa Amenfi East District of the Western region. The third is said to be in a critical condition i the hospital.
Graphic.com.gh reports that there was a misunderstanding prior to the violence. All the people involved were reportedly gambling at a table when disagreement ensued.
Since the language was unknown to the Ghanaians around they just looked on as the would-be assailant and his victims shouted on.
During the confusion, the suspect stormed out and returned shortly thereafter to spray bullets towards his compatriots, and sped off in a vehicle to an unknown destination.
After calm was restored, three Chinese nations were reportedly found to have fallen, with the police pronouncing two dead at the scene and the third critically injured.
The dead and the injured are now at the Government Hospital in Wassa.
The police also arrested 29 Chinese who were said to have been present at the scene. None of them however, could tell the police what happened and the whereabouts of the assailant.
In recent past, Chinese individuals involved in sectors such as mining and retailing have found themselves foul of the law. Sometimes, the crimes were very serious.
This has forced one Chinese ambassador after the other to assure Ghanaians that they would ask their people to be law-abiding.
