An 8 year old boy has been shot at Apradan in Kwahu West Municipal Assembly of Eastern Region by a Chinese man called Afei a.k.a Soldier.

The incident occurred Wednesday 12th January 2022 around 8:00 am.

According to the mother of the victim, Sarah Padiki who spoke to Agoo News Obrempong Kweku Ampomah, his son was playing behind the residence of the Chinese with his friends when she heard a gun fired from the house.

She then rushed to see his son bleeding so all she could do at the time was to rinse the blood with clean water and with the help of some residents; they rushed him to the Holy Family Hospital, Nkawkaw.

“We don’t have any problem with the Chinese. We live in harmony with them. They play with my son and even send him on errands, so I don’t know why and how this could happen like that” she said.

His Uncle, Mr. Narteh Benjamin pleaded with government and the justice system to deal with the matter to the end for justice to be served.

Some angry residents were mad over the incident and were ready to take the law into their own hands. It took the intervention of the Nkawkaw police command to put the situation under control.

The Police have commenced investigation into the matter.
