A fifty-one (51) year-old woman, Sylvia Ahenkwa, early last Thursday morning met her untimely death at the hands of land guards at Community 18 in the Greater Accra Region.
The suspected land guards were said to have been engaged by an estate developer to forcefully eject the woman who is said to be a care taker from the land.
Shattered glasses, spent ammunitions and other dangerous implements were scattered at the scene of the confrontation which led to the death of the innocent woman.
The decease body has been deposited at the Tema General Hospital for autopsy.
Further information indicates that the presence of the decease on the land has prevented the illegal claimant (the Estate Developer) from occupying the land, hence the need to kill her.
It has been noted that the deceased have on several occasions been threatened to vacate the land for the safety of her life but she failed to adhere.
An eyewitness, who refused to disclose his identity told the New Crusading GUIDE, that at about 7.00am last Thursday, a group of men occupying two vehicles including motorbikes appeared at the site and started firing guns which led to the death of Madam Ahenkwa.
When contacted, Kenneth Tetteh, Secretary of the Kwei Dornu Family, expressed his worry over the death of the innocent woman and called on authorities to bring the killers to order.
“I was not surprised of the death of the woman because it tells that the killers have executed their long term goal but we shall ensure that they face the wrath of the law” he stated. The Tema community 18 Police remained mute on the sudden incidents, as Inspector J. Banfo told this reporter that he was not eligible to speak on the matter till further notice
