A thirty- two-year-old farmer has been shot dead at Warabeba, a suburb of Ayensudo in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem Municipality of the Central region.
The farmer and father of two, Atta Panin was allegedly shot dead by his friend Kofi Benya, who is a hunter.
The incident happened after the farmer went to the hunter’s house to demand a gun he had given him for his hunting expeditions.
The two had agreed to share the booty from the hunting expedition but the accused is said to have failed to honour his part of the agreement as he kept all the proceeds to himself; a situation which didn’t go down well with the deceased .
The accused is said to have entered his room to grab another gun which he used to shoot the farmer and bolted afterwards.
The farmer was subsequently rushed to the Central regional hospital by some residents who heard the gun shot.
The youth of the town upon hearing of the death of the farmer moved in to burn down the house of the accused in the town.
The case has since been filed with the Elmina police who are on a manhunt for the accused.
