A proprietor of a filling station at Paga has shot dead a pump attendant at a rival fuel station.

Osman Paregavwa was said to have stormed Quantum Petroleum, a filling station located along the Navrongo-Paga Road, around 9:30 pm Monday to stop customers from patronising fuel at that station.

He subsequently brought out a handgun from his pocket after one of the customers decided to challenge him.

Osman was said to have fired two shots which were aimed at the customer.

The said customer did not receive any bullet wounds as he managed to flee the scene.

The second bullet, however, hit one of the pump attendants, Moses Akazuo, in the head.

As the Assistant Director of the under-attack filling station, Stephen Ahorsu explained to Accra-based Starr FM: “When the guy moved with the motorbike, Osman fired the second shot. That shot went straight into the head of one of my pump attendants. Osman forgot about the person he shot. He chased the one on the motorbike to the entrance of the filling station and fired again. He missed that one, too. When he returned and he saw the guy (the pump attendant) lying there, he started shedding tears.”

Meanwhile, relatives and co-workers of the deceased are demanding for justice.

Osman has since been arrested. The Upper East Regional Police Command is currently handling the case.
