Some of the youth said they destroyed landlord Victor Stephen Nana Kankam’s house because they were pained by his inhumanity.

“When we got here, Victor Stephen Nana Kankam had gone into hiding. He does not live in the house that we burnt. He has purposely dedicated the house we burnt for rent. We went to his private residence so we could deal with him but he had also called his team to his rescue,” One of them who spoke off-camera also said.
