Young Liberian School Teacher Shot Dead in Ghana

A young female Liberian school teacher, Rebecca Wollor was shot dead by a Ghanaian man on her way home from teaching in the Upper Accra region, Ada Foah.

Police report from a local police commander has confirmed the shooting and described the alleged shooter’s explanation as bizarre as he told police he meant to shoot a bird, John Yamba, police Superintendent of the told a local Ghanaian radio, Joy FM.

The head of the school where the late Rebecca Wollor taught said the deceased was a friendly person. Friends of the deceased also say she was smart, determined and a focus-driven person who left her native country, 

Liberia as the result of the civil which torn that little West African nation apart for fourteen  years that ended in 2003.

The shooter is in police custody awaiting arraignment, police say he will be charged with murder.

Unconfirmed details coming from Ghana and those who knew the deceased say, there is strong indication that the Liberian school teacher death was not a random accident as the accused professes to see his action but a calculated murder in broad daylight.

They stressed that further investigation could uncover evidence that the accused version of the shooting is unfounded. “You cannot shoot a bird in the middle of buzzing metropolitan; it is not in the forest”, observers say

The Liberian refugee community in Ghana is furious and demanding that justice meted is out against the accused.

Rebecca Wollor before moving to Ghana  attended a local Catholic school, the St. Teresa

Convent in Monrovia, Liberia’s capital city. She completed her college education in Ghana and was in the employ as teacher in the Ghana education system.

The Liberian government is yet to give its official stance on the deceased death.
