An eyewitness who gave an account after the incidence explained that,the tragedy was caused by what could be described as a harmless misunderstanding between the deceased and the suspect.

The late Boadi, was reported to have told the suspect to reposition his red Hyundai vehicle which was wrongly parked in front of his mechanic shop.

But the suspect who blatantly disregarded Boadi’s plea led to a strong argument. Frimpong was then said to have reached out for a pistol in his vehicle and fired at the deceased.

The family of the deceased and hundreds of artisans have poured onto the street impressing on the police and the deputy Interior Minister for justice for their fallen colleagues.
