Rebecca Teye, the wife of the late Chief of Sota, Nene Teiko Kpetutu who was shot together with his son and one other person on Sunday March 20, on the Afienya-Dodowa road says she suspects her family were killed over a land dispute.
She told Joy News that she strongly believe that her husband was murdered over a long standing dispute in connection with some land documents.
According to her, over the last few days, the chief had been inundated with some strange calls which usually came as threats from people she suspected to be family members.
Rebecca Teye noted that her husband might have been murdered by some people in the family and others in connivance over his refusal to append his signature to a land document that had been sold by the few disgruntled family members.
She said though her husband never revealed the names of those threatening him, she strongly believe his death is related to some parcels of family lands.
She said her fears were heightened by the fact that none of the people she suspected had come forward to commiserate with her since the death of the chief. “The family members who had issues with him have not had the courage to step foot here,” Rebecca lamented.
Nene Teiko Kpetutu and two others were shot and killed in their Toyota Corolla vehicle by some unknown gunmen who rode an unregistered motor bike on the Afienya-Dodowa road after pursuing them in a hot chase.
They were finally over taken by the gunmen at Mango Tsonya, near Dodowa and ordered to stop.
Eyewitnesses reported that the two gunmen shot and killed the chief and the others and quickly fled.
The Police in Dodowa have told news men that they are investigating the incident.
