A drinking bar operator, Michael Kpalam, and his wife Gladys Henanawopeh have been critically injured at Kasseh, a suburb of Ada in the Greater Accra Region after unknown gunmen stormed their residence at night on Thursday (November 7, 2019) at dawn.

They were badly wounded in the attack and currently in hospital battling for their lives.

According to an eye witness, Godwin Asare, he heard warning shots in his house at about 1 a.m. He said when he opened his door, he saw five gunmen on the compound.

Mr. Asare further explained that his sister in the same area had earlier been attacked at gunpoint and her bag and money were taken.

“When the gunmen left the house her sister started screaming and this attracted the attention of Mr Kpalam and his wife who came out of their room and were shot in the process. The man was shot twice in the abdomen and the woman in her ribs and arm.” Said Mr. Asare.

“I was not having any gadget to protect myself with so I couldn’t go out. I managed to call the police emergency number and the Kasseh Police came to our rescue,” he said.

Mr. Kpalam is currently at the Greater Accra Regional (Ridge) Hospital after he was transferred from the Ada East District Hospital where he was earlier admitted together with the wife.
