A romantic triangle involving a 30-year-old woman supposedly dating two men ended bitterly when one of the men shot the other in cold blood at Alhaji, near Achimota, in Accra.
The deceased, 35-year-old car dealer Kwame Agyapong, had confronted his rival, Derrick Nana Donkor, 28, when he bumped into the love birds in the house of the lady, Keshia Akosua Osei, 30.
The ensuing confusion turned bloody as Nana Donkor pulled a gun and fired at Agyapong, killing him instantly.
It turned out that Akosua Osei was the girlfriend of the two men at the same time, but while the deceased was married, the other was single.
The Achimota Mile 7 Police are currently investigating the circumstances which led to the killing of the car dealer at the house of his girlfriend at Alhaji, near Achimota.
Agyapong was said to have spotted his girlfriend in the company of the suspect, Nana Donkor, and a misunderstanding ensued between them.
The suspect, together with his businesswoman girlfriend at the centre of the drama, have been arrested and are assisting the police in investigations, while the body of the deceased has been deposited at the Police Hospital morgue pending autopsy.
According to the Public Relations Officer of the Accra Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mrs Afia Tenge, at about 1 a.m. last Saturday, Derrick Nana Donkor in the company of Keshia Akosua Osei, both residents of Alhaji, a suburb of Achimota, showed up at the Mile 7 police station with a pistol in hand.
She said they reported that one Kwame Agyapong, the deceased, was the ex-boyfriend of Keshia, and since their separation the deceased had been following and beating her anytime he saw her with other men.
