Police in Kumasi have opened investigations into a shooting incident at Adum in the Ashanti Region

The police in Kumasi are on a manhunt for a man who allegedly fired multiple shots to kill a woman at Adum in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region at 9pm on Thursday (20 April)..

The suspect is said to have fired five times at close range which resulted in the death of the woman, identified as 26-year-old Victoria Dapaa, popularly known as Maa Adwoa.

Reports by Asaase News indicate that the man, yet to be identified, jumped into a rickshaw [a light two-wheeled passenger vehicle – commonly referred to as Pragya in Ghana] and bolted.

The victim was rushed to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

According to eyewitnesses, the man was seen chatting with the deceased before shooting her at close range.

“After the first two shots, she was pleading with the guy to stop and he added three more shots before jumping into a rickshaw [a light two-wheeled passenger vehicle] to run away.”

“Because he was holding a gun, we could not attempt to arrest him,” an eyewitness recounted.
