Though the police are yet to launch an investigation into the matter to find out what really led to the incidence, they received report that the two were lovers.

But according to a narration by eyewitnesses, a man was seen holding a double-barreled gun in the neighborhood around 8:00pm after he nearly shot a girl of about 10 years and when they approached and questioned him, he (gun holder) only said he was hunting for an animal, the residents were convinced and left him but later they heard a gunshot and when they rushed to the scene, a woman who they later identified to be Akos was found lying in a pool of blood, she was then rushed to Dzodze St. Anthony Hospial where she was later pronounced dead.









Residents claimed; Akos has moved in to join her fiancé Kwashivi Ampra Ahiafor who is about 50 years old at Dzodze Totsoanyi. But they say there have not been any day without matrimonial issues with fights and quarreling, recently, Kwashivi complained of his missing money of about Ghc1500 which he accused Akos of stealing and reported to the police recently, so they believed the killing might be a result of the earlier accusations
