There is tension in Gomoa Buduburam after an angry mob besieged the Police Station following an officer allegedly shooting a Nigerian to death.
According to Adom News’ Seth Ankomah Adjei, the Nigerian community is seeking answers as they do not understand why the man know as Precious was shot.
According to his nursing mother wife, the deceased came over to the hotel they were staying to tell her that someone had threatened to kill him.
She said when they left the hotel to go home, her husband was anxious as he said his assailant could pursue him.
According to her, they went to a friend’s house and when they got there, Precious shouted for the neighbours to come out because his assailant was still on his tail.
‘The neighbours came out in their numbers and my late husband retraced his footstep to look out for the assailant. It took a long time and Precious was not returning so some of the people around followed up.
“Then someone called to tell me that Precious has been admitted to the hospital after he sustained a knife wound. When I insisted that I wanted to go see him they said no and locked me in the room.
“I later realised the police have shot and killed my husband. He has opened a shop for me here and people around know him very well…he is hardworking and does not steal so I don’t know why he was killed,” the mother of the five-week-old baby told the reporter.
The angry mob besieged the police station demanding answers. Some of them threw stones into the Police Station after they were sacked from there.
The police called for reinforcement to restore calm at the Station and in the area.
