The incident occurred on Monday, April 5, 2021, and there has since been an outcry by residents following the grisly murder of the 33-year-old deceased identified as Yaw George.

According to Starr FM report, the irate residents also besieged the town’s police station over the heinous murder.

The 33-year-old deceased per the report was shot Monday morning while driving a taxi with registration number GR 3847-21 and escorting a truck transporting his lumber to a nearby town.

The report continued that the military officers were chasing the lumber track which was approaching the Police barrier on the Asamankese to Accra road when they shot through the back windshield of the taxi, killing the driver instantly.

“They shot him in the head,” an eye witness was quoted saying.

“They even abandoned him and were still pursuing the truck so it was the police officers who noticed the shooting incident and chased the military officers to report themselves to the Police,” the witness added.

The Acting Public Relations Officer of the Eastern Regional Police Command, Sergeant Francis Gomado confirmed the incident saying the media will be briefed after the preliminary investigation is completed.
