Mother of murdered Ofankor tenant, Stella Okyere, says her 30-year-old departed son left behind two children.
The family of the late Benjamine Spark is in mourning after the budding musician was unexpectedly gunned down to death by his landlord.
Speaking to GhanaWeb, the mother of the murdered tenant said her late son was not married but he had two children.
“My son’s death is really a blow to us. He was a beacon of hope. We are not rich but Benjamin was a big inspiration to us. He always told me that my labour will not be in vain.”
Though she did not give details about her late son’s offsprings, Madam Stella revealed that “Benjamin was not married but he had two children.”
She also mentioned that her dead son was the lifeline of the family, hence his passing will have a devastating effect on the family.
“My son was my go-to person in times of need. He supported me whenever I needed money to go to the hospital. As he is gone now, where will my help come from when I’m in need?”
Madam Okyere further called on all stakeholders to make sure justice is served.
