A landlord has allegedly murdered his tenant for refusing to vacate a room he has rented to him.
Victor Stephen Nana Kankam according to police extract, shot budding musician Spark Benjamine who was rushed to the police station with multiple injuries.
According to Peace FM’s Agya Kwabena, the tenant who didn’t want to extend his stay had already started moving out to his new apartment.
A brutal afternoon shooting act allegedly perpetrated by a landlord at Ofankor in Accra has ended the life of his tenant.
In a fit of rage, the landlord, Victor Stephen Nana Kankam, who could not withstand the refusal of the tenant, Benjamin Okyere, to vacate a room he rented out to him, allegedly picked a gun and shot him in cold blood.
The incident sparked some outrage from the public and yesterday morning, some people set fire to the apartment in retaliation.
The police have arrested Kankam while investigations are underway.
The victim, aged 31, popularly known as Trillionaire, was a budding musician, known for his album, titled Pon Dem.
According to eyewitnesses, Okyere’s two years’ tenancy agreement was to expire on May 24, 2020.
Consequently, the landlord is said to have called Okyere and warned him not to spend a day more after the expiration of the tenancy.
Kankam is alleged to have asked Okyere to pack out of the room and leave the key to the room with any of the other tenants as he did not want to set his eyes on him after May 24, 2020.
