The Greater Accra Police Command says its investigation has revealed that the weapon used by a Landlord at Ofankor to kill a tenant was legally acquired and registered through due process in 2007.
The suspect, Victor Stephen Kankam, 38, has been put before the Abeka District Court and remanded into Police custody after being provisionally charged with murder.
The Landlord on Sunday shot his tenant to death for refusing to vacate a two-bedroom house at Ofankor in Accra, claiming he did so in self-defence.
Victor Stephen Kankam, reports say stormed his Ofankor residence and demanded that the tenant vacates the house and hand over the key to him as his rent had expired.
Benjamin Otchere, 31, now deceased was said to have argued that his rent will be due on the midnight of Sunday, 24th May, 2020 and so insisted the Landlord gives him enough time to pack his things.
In an ensuing argument, the Land Lord who was armed with a pump-action gun allegedly shot Otchere at close range seriously injuring him.
He was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
Meanwhile, the family of the deceased is demanding that justice is served.
