The man, yet to be identified jumped into a rickshaw [a light two-wheeled passenger vehicle – commonly referred to as Pragya in Ghana] and bolted.
The incident happened around 10pm on Thursday night [April 20, 2023] around Dufie Towers behind Aseda House.

According to eyewitnesses, the man was seen chatting with the deceased before shooting her at close range.
“After the first two shots, she was pleading with the guy to stop and he added three more shots before jumping into a rickshaw [a light two-wheeled passenger vehicle] to run away.
“Because he was holding a gun, we could not attempt to arrest him,” said the eyewitnesses.
