A staff of Town and Country Planning Division was shot by land guard during an inspection of a parcel of land situated at South Odorkor, a suburb of Greater Accra.
Prince Tetteh and other staff of Town and Country Planning were reported to have gone to the land to inspect ongoing developmental projects being undertaken by a developer when they were suddenly attacked by a known notorious land guard, only identified as Scorpion.
Police sources revealed that, the victim and his colleagues were entering the site when they were confronted by Scorpion who, without wasting any time, opened fire, shooting indiscriminately.
Bullet from his gun however hit Prince Tetteh on the leg, and he was later rushed to the hospital where he is receiving treatment.
The suspected land guard, Scorpion was arrested by the police and placed at the Accra Regional Police Command for further investigations.
