opened his door and saw about five armed men on the compound.
Mr Asare said his sister in the same
vicinity had earlier been attacked at gun point and forced to hand over her bag
with unspecified amount of money in it.
He said “When the gunmen left the house
her sister started screaming and this attracted the attention of Mr Kpalam and
his wife who came out of their room and were shot in the process. The man was
shot twice in the abdomen and the woman in her ribs and arm”.
“I was not having any gadget to protect
myself with so I couldn’t go out. I managed to call the police emergency number
and the Kasseh Police came to our rescue,” he said.
