- An 18-year-old boy has reportedly shot his colleague in under bizarre circumstances
- The two were allegedly sharing proceeds they got from an internet scam (sakawa) when things went sour
- The incident is reported to have happened at a hotel at Akumasa Dumasi near Nkoranza
An 18-year-old believed to be involved in internet fraud, known in local parlance as sakawa, has reportedly shot and killed his colleague in a weird incident.
According to a report YEN.com.gh in the Daily Guide newspaper, the suspect, Akwasi Agyeman, shot and killed his friend, Isaac Gyan, 20, in a hotel room at Akumsa Dumasi, near Nkoranza in the Bono East Region.
The report fell short of disclosing what really triggered the shooting which is said to have occurred last week but indicated that its checks revealed the young boys involved in internet scam.
They reportedly duped someone on the internet and had hired the hotel room to share the proceeds they got.
However, a misunderstanding cropped up and Agyemang allegedly shot his friend with a locally manufactured pistol, causing him to bleed profusely.
Gyan who was rushed to St Theresa’s Hospital at Nkoranza was admitted but died the next day.
Agyeman has been arrested by police to assist in investigations, according to Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Chief Inspector Augustine Oppong.
The Police PRO said the gun had also been retrieved from him.
However, Chief Inspector Oppong could not tell what triggered the shooting of the youngster by the suspect.
