Some angry Nigerian residents in Gomoa Budumburam earlier today [Saturday,] besieged a police station in the area after a police officer shot a Nigerian to death.
The Kasoa District Commander, Superintendent Samuel Odame who confirmed the incident to Citi News said the deceased, Walter Billions was shot after threatening to harm some police officers who were called in to restore calm after he had run amok in the late hours of Friday, July 17, 2020.
Speaking to Citi News a leader of the Nigerian Community in Gomoa Budumburam, Emmanuel Chukuamaka Azebuake said the shooting was uncalled for since the deceased was not mentally sound.
He said the incident has been reported to the District Police Commander for investigation.
“I was able to call our Nigerian High Commission and inform them about what has happened and I was instructed to follow the due process of the law which is reporting to the District Police Commander.
“He has assured me that the culprits will not be left just like that. Right now, the boys are angry. If he had intentions of harming people, he would have. For now, we are all waiting to hear what the Police and the Ghana government will do about this.”
