The Ajumako District Police Command in the Central Region is conducting an investigation into the events that led to a father going insane at Enyan Abowinum, where he shot and killed his wife and son before turning the gun on himself.

It was stated that Kwesi Tandoh, 40, went berserk on Wednesday night about 10:30 p.m. and shot his wife, Abena Nyamekye, 43, as well as one of his sons, Richmond Tandoh, aged 14.

A shelter is providing counseling services to three other children, ages five, nine, and seventeen, who were able to survive the violent tragedy.

Irene Oppong, the Public Relations Officer for the Central Regional Police, stated that the Ajumako District Police Command responded to an information received from Enyan Abowinum that Kwesi Tandoh had shot his wife and one of their children. The information was that Kwesi Tandoh had shot his wife and one of their children.

DSP Oppong said that when the police got at the site, Tandoh had locked their house and was brandishing a pistol, firing shots and threatening to shoot anybody who would try to decrease his family members. He also warned that he would shoot anyone who would dare to reduce him.

DSP Oppong stated that when the police broke into the room, they saw Richmond 14, and the father lying in a pool of blood with gunshot wounds in their heads and chests as the wife was attempting to fight for her life. The wife was the only one left in the room.

She stated that Abena Nyamekye was swiftly sent to the Ajumako District hospital for treatment; however, Richmond and Tandoh, the father (suspect), were pronounced dead as soon as they arrived at the hospital.

Later on, the 43-year-old wife, Abena Nyamekye, passed away while she was undergoing treatment.

Because they concealed themselves in the room, the five-year-old, nine-year-old, and seventeen-year-old children who were present were saved from the violence.

In the meantime, the corpses of those who passed away have been transported to the morgue of Our Lady of Grace hospital in Breman Asikuma for the purposes of preservation and autopsy.

According to DSP Oppong, among of the goods that were discovered at the scene of the crime were a cutlass, a locally built handgun, a shotgun with a single barrel, and weed killer.

DSP Oppong stated that the command, in collaboration with the regional social welfare office, had the children sent to a shelter. Currently, the University of Cape Coast Guidance and Counseling Unit is providing the children with psychological support due to the fact that they appeared to be traumatized.
