â€œI was sitting in this lotto kiosk and saw some two men riding a motorbike. One got down and entered the house, moments later we heard a loud sound. We initially thought a gas cylinder had exploded but nobody came out of the house.
â€œNot long after I saw the man come out of the house with a pistol stuck around his waist holding a brown envelope. But before I could raise an alarm for help he jumped onto the motorbike and sped off. I and two others went to the house and saw the deceased in a pool of blood. We rushed him to the hospital but he, unfortunately, died at the Kumasi South Hospital,â€œ the eyewitness recounted.
The body has been deposited at the morgue.
