“We heard of the fight and went to the scene to find out what the problem was. We were told the deceased  confronted  Kweku for money to buy another fish but he turned deaf ears,” he said.

“The confrontation led to a heated  argument  between  them because Kweku was not willing to pay the money but stabbed the deceased with the iron rod with the defence that the deceased was the first to hit him with the rod,” he narrated.
