Kweku Anu, a resident of Gomoa Kweikrom in the Central region, has allegedly stabbed to death with an iron rod his 38-year-old friend, Kenneth Arhin after his cat chewed Mr Arhin’s fried fish.
Information available to Adom Newsindicated that the deceased met his untimely death during a confrontation with the suspect to demand money for his fish.
Confirming the incident in an interview with Adom News, Gomoa Kweikrom Unit Committee Secretary, Daniel Kofi Agyeman, explained that the amicable confrontation led to a heated fight leading to Mr Arhin’s death.
“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.
The suspect has been apprehended and handed over to the Ojobi District Police Command. The body of the deceased has been sent to the Winneba Trauma and Specialist Hospital.
