On that fateful day, Yaw Acheampong was standing near a wall close to their house when suddenly the suspect arrived in a car and parked about 150 meters to victim’s house along the road.
Suspect Eric Asante, who was inside the vehicle with another friend, came out of his car and signaled the victim to come over.
The victim, who thought the suspect wanted him to run errands for him, approached the suspect in the car.
Immediately the victim drew closer to the car, Eric Yaw Asante, also a drinking spot operator, allegedly pointed a gun at Yaw Acheampong and shot him in the head.

He said Eric Asante was currently in police custody and was yet to give his statement and his reasons for killing Yaw Acheampong.
