Reports indicate that the deceased met her untimely death around 2:00 am after some unknown people in a silver SUV drove by and opened fire during an erratic shooting during the funeral rites of another Canadian based Ghanaian.
According to the Canadian police department, “the situation is a case of individuals from one neighborhood moving to another hood to cause violence and damages”.
The deceased, Ms. Nyarko, is reported to have parked her car with three others at the area of Replin Road and Old Meadow Lane when the silver Cadillac SUV drove by and opened fire, which led to her death. She was pronounced dead after being rushed to the Toronto Trauma Centre for medical attention.
