Murder

Two Persons mistakenly shot, one dead over land boundary dispute at Adwumakase Kese.

Two native civilians have sustained gunshot injuries from police warning shots fired to dispel crowd at Adwumakese Kese on Thursday 25th February 2021. But unfortunately, one of the victims, Alex Kwame Wusu, is reported to have died this morning from the gunshots wounds. The other victim is still receiving treatment at the hospital for wounds sustained in the thighs from the gun shots.

The police personnel registered their massive presence at a ceremony held at the forecourt of the Chief palace purported to honour the new chief of Adwumakase Kese, Nana Asenso Kuffour Ababio in the Ashanti region.

There is a land dispute between the chief of Bomfa and Adwumakase Kese on the specific land boundary that divides the two towns. The Adwumakase Kese residents believe that, the parcel of land that separates the two towns is a deep pit near a particular river. But Bomfa Chief has crossed that boundary to erect a signpost at location far beyond the deep pit.

The people of Adwumakase are accusing the chief of Bomfa of engaging the police security there to arrest some aggrieved natives of Adwumakase Kese who are suspected to have vandalised some properties belonging to the Bomfa stool land.

This led to firing of warning shots resulting in loss of one person's life. The dead person is a decent calm guy who respect himself.

The residents of Adwumakase Kese further appealed to His royal Majesty Otumfour Osei Tutu to use his power to resolve the land dispute between the two towns amicably.
