Further information gathered by YEN.com.gh indicated that the landlord is a retired special force member in the United Kingdom.

According to reports, he went to the victim's apartment wearing a bulletproof vest which is quite hard to get in the country.

Meanwhile, the Ofankor District Commander, DSP George Asare, revealed that in his interrogation with the suspect, nothing happened for the tenant to warrant getting shot by the landlord.

DSP Asare revealed that he intentionally shot him upon arrival at the property because nothing ensued for such an action to be taken.

DSP Asare said he purposely went there to shot to kill him as the gunshots were directed at parts of his body that wouldn't make him live.
