In Kumasi, 80 Year Old Landlord Shoots Two Kids Over Father’s Failure To Pay Rent

An 80-year-old former military officer has shot and injured two kids aged 6 and 8 after their father failed to pay his rent.

The landlord in a heated disagreement with the father of the kids, Collins Kusi, threatened to shoot him if he failed to pay his rent.

True to his words, the landlord initially attacked Mr Kusi with a hammer and subsequently attacked him with a single-barreled gun.

However, the landlord’s shot missed Mr Kusi and hit his two children who were standing close by.

“I heard a knock on my door; I came out to find the old man tying a red cloth around my windows. I asked him why and in a loud voice, he asked me whether he hadn’t threatened to kill me before. He had a hammer in his hand; he then hit me with it. I quickly struggled with him for it. After taking the hammer from him, he went into his room and brought a single barrel gun.

“He shot in my direction twice but missed. Again, I struggled with him for the gun. Later, I heard people drawing my attention to the children who were down bleeding at that point,” he recounted to Luv FM in an interview.
