Michael Agbo-Kulu, alias Eli, has been shot dead in front of his wife and 12-year-old boy during a robbery attempt on Saturday 20 November 2021.
The 44-year-old victim was attacked at his new site in Anyinam in Kumasi
An eyewitness and a relative told Asaase News that the attacker who used his son as bait robbed the family at gunpoint and shot the victim in the process.
“In fact, they told the kid to tell the father that he had a stomach ache so the father should come out and help him and sort him out. Out of that the father opened the door and they shot the father,” the eyewitness said.
Agbo-Kulu, who sustained gunshot wounds in his lower abdomen, was rushed to the Asafo Agyei Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The latest incident has heightened fear in the area as residents demand police protection. They are pleading with the police to intensify patrols in the area.
‘”I do not really know why; the police are nearby but I don’t know if it’s because they are not many there, that’s why all these robberies keep happening,” one of the residents told Asaase News.
