Man shot by soldier near Kasoa
In the Central Region’s Ga-South and Awutu Senya East Districts, a military officer shot and killed a 29-year-old man in the village of Habor, which is close to Kasoa.
On Monday, January 30, 2023, about 4:30 PM, the incident took place.
According to reports, Alfred Awuku, the deceased, was engaged in a struggle with another soldier over a gun when the victim was fatally shot three times at the ribs by the witnessing soldier.
According to reports, the victim and a few others were working on a piece of land when six or so military officers attacked the area and forcibly halted them.

However, the dead man and his pals disobeyed the command, which led to a confrontation in which one of the soldiers brandished a gun and threatened to shoot the dead man.
The victim attempted to disarm the soldier while holding the gun. However, the gun accidentally discharged, killing the victim instantaneously.
The other five individuals who were on the property working alongside the deceased were dragged into a military truck and taken somewhere they didn’t know.
The Police Hospital Mortuary has received the deceased’s body for preservation.
The Ga South Police Command has been notified about the incident for investigation.
There is a land dispute in the area, according to Yaw Boagyan, the Assembly Member for Habor Electoral Electoral Area Peter Adonu, who was speaking in an interview with Kasapa News.
He claims that it has been proven that the troops were engaged to lead a corporation whose property included some that had been sold to the deceased.
The Assembly man therefore called on the Inspector General Police to beef up security in the Community known for land disputes.
