Achimota school student convicted for murder

After almost a year of court activities, a juvenile Court in Accra has sentenced the 18-year old final year student of Achimota School who shot his girlfriend with his father’s single barrel gun to three years at the correctional home.



The deceased Lily Dzigbordi Asigbetse who lived at Cantonments had visited the accused person at Community eight (8) in Tema.

The incident occurred on January 5 2017. The accused told the police that he intended to shoot into the air however the gravity of the gun changed course and hit the deceased.

The latest judgement by the court has been met with praise by the family of the deceased.

A family member, Peggy Ama Donkor wrote on her Facebook Timeline: “Our God indeed answers by fire and vindicates his own. On behalf of the Asigbetse and Donkor families, I wish to thank you all for your prayers and advice during our darkest times. Special thanks to Dr Joyce Aryee, Kojo Anan Ankomah, Mrs . Ansah , Egbert Faibille and all the silent prayer partners. God richly bless you all.”
