A 38-year-old Takoradi-based mason has been shot death under strange circumstance.

The deceased, Eric Yeboah, popularly known as coach, was said to have been shot at the chest and arms on Tuesday dawn around 3:00 a.m. at his neighbourhood at Kweikuma, a suburb of Sekondi/Takoradi.

Wife of the deceased, Faustina Amtwiwaa, told Connect FM that she woke up at dawn with her husband and stepped out of their room only to find some people loading some items they believed were stolen in a nearby uncompleted building, into a salon car.

“As soon they saw us, one of them fired at us. I quickly dodged and fell flat on the floor but my husband was unlucky, he was hit by the bullet killing him instantly” the wife recounted

After the shooting incident, the wife said she raised an alarm but before neighbours could arrive at the scene, the assailants had bolted in a black BMW vehicle.

The body of the deceased has since been conveyed to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital morgue.

Report has since been lodged with the police who have launched a manhunt for the assailants.
