A family member of the victim, David Adjetey who disclosed this to Adom News said the policeman whose name has been given as Zuenu at Akporman shot him purposely during the brawl over a parcel of land.


He said the policeman who fired the shot was part of a six-armed police team led by one Supritendent Sarfo Agyeman who claimed to be the new owner of the land.

The victim according to Adjetey  went there to stop them from working with prove of a ruling by Appeals Court in 2015 which ruled in their favour but was shot for trespassing.

He noted that, one of the men who went with the victim to stop the policemen from working was arrested.

David Adjetey said the shot was fired in to Elias’ spinal cord and has left him paralyzed.

The incident happened on Thursday, May 24, 2018.
