A Ghanaian landlord identified as Victor Stephen Nana Kankam, has been arrested for allegedly killing his tenant who refused to vacate his house after he ordered him to.
A Facebook user, Blessing Naana Ansah-Senkyire, who shared photos of the arrested suspect at the police station revealed that the landlord who was angry that her brother, Kobby didn’t finish packing on the day he was asked to vacate the property, took a gun and shot him while still in his room. Kobby reportedly died instantly. She wrote;
“Yesterday this man shot and killed my brother at ofankor. Mr landlord who is a disappointed bugar, you won’t go free. No one will bail you out for taking a life..
