A young man in his late 40s, Kofi Essoun, is currently in the cells of the Manso Police Station for shooting his brother dead at Bowohomoden, a community near Mampong in the Mpohor District of the Western Region.

Nana Kwame, a resident told Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the host of Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show that the suspect is a known hunter in the community.

He went to the spot to pick up his animal only for him to see the lifeless body of his brother.

“He came home and informed us that he has killed his brother. He went hunting alone last night without his brother. He saw an animal and shot it, he was going for the animal only for him to see the lifeless body of his brother lying at the same spot. He was shocked as to what his brother was doing at the place at that particular time in the night when he did not go hunting with him,” the man narrated.

District Chief Executive (DCE) for Mpohor Ignatius Asaah Mensah confirms the suspect has been arrested after reporting himself at the Manso Police station.
