Thomas Agyapong, a resident of Ayigya, was said to be studying together with some friends in a house at Ayigya behind the Nwabiagya Rural Bank when the incident occurred.

The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) District Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ransford Nsiah told Graphic.com.gh,  the deceased was working on a laptop belonging to one of the KNUST students when the intruders entered the house in which the deceased and his friends were occupying.
