A spiritualist has been remanded by a court in the Ashanti region for allegedly shooting six people at Asomia Yawsore Ankaase in the Kwabre East district.
The incident occurred after the suspect, popularly known as ‘spiritual father’, had heated exchanges with some youth who had confronted his visitors over the route to his shrine.
According to the assemblyman for the area Kakyere Assumadu, after calm had been restored following the verbal exchanges, the suspect went to his shrine, picked a gun and went to the home of the victims and shot sporadically injuring six people in the process.
“It occurred on the day the Muslims ended the Ramadan, some youth who were having a family meeting had a confrontation with some individuals who were visiting ‘spiritual father’ over the route to his premises.
“But the matter was resolved, then later he went for a gun and went to their home to shoot them. As I speak with you, one of the guys is lying in a critical state at the Ankaase hospital. His situation is very bad,” he said.
The Kwabre East Police Commander Julius Kpeddeson who confirmed the incident to StarrFMonline.com Monday said the regional police command has taken over investigations into the case.
