There are many decent landlords and landladies, but there are still some poor ones among them. Around May of last year, news broke that a landlord in Ofankor had shot and killed his own tenant for an unethical cause. The tenant's name was Benjamin Okyere, and he was said to be a successful underground musician. Unfortunately for him, his landlord killed him at the age of 31.
The perpetrator was apprehended and detained by Ghanaian authorities. Many people are also unsure if Benjamin Okyere has received justice or whether his case has been one of the alleged boycotted court cases.
Residents in the area were so enraged that they took matters into their own hands and set fire to the house where Benjamin was shot and killed by his landlord. This happened almost a year ago. We assume the deceased's family is still searching for justice for their beloved son. What happens in this country to those who take the lives of others? Do they still end up being killed or imprisoned for the remainder of their lives? Ghanaians are curious.
