Family of Kumawood actor, Andrew Ntul Mensah, popularly known as Scorpion GH, believe persons involved in the shooting of the actor were contract killers.
Per their narration, the tenants in the house where the attack was visited on the actor heard the perpetrators of the crime say: “you ave been our target.”
In an exclusive interview wth Kumasi-based Luv FM, brother to the victim who spoke under anonymity said his brother was very lucky to have escaped from the hands of the killers.
“My brother told me when the assailants got to him, one said kill him and let’s go so it was obvious they were just there to kill him,” he said.
“He was their target so they run after him when he escaped and shot him twice before he [Scorpion] got help from neighbours,” he recounted.
The family is appealing to the police to hunt for the suspects and bring them to book.
“We thank God for saving his life but we want to police to arrest the gang,” he added.
