Man stabs friend to death over GH¢30

A 25-year-old man has been stabbed to death by a friend over GH¢30, at Aboabo Mempeasem in the Asokore Mampong Municipality of Ashanti region.

The deceased, Amos Ekow, was said to have been stabbed several times in the chest by Kwadwo Afriyie.

Eye witnesses told The Ghanaian Times that, the deceased about three months ago collected GH¢30 from Afriyie, to be refunded later.

According to the source, Ekow failed to pay the debt at the scheduled time, and allegedly played hide and seek with Afriyie.

Afriyie was said to have met with the deceased in the evening of Tuesday at a spot where the former demanded his money.

According to the source, a misunderstanding ensued between them, and Afriyie stabbed Ekow to death with a pair of scissors.

Afriyie, after the incident, had gone into hiding and the police were looking for him, while the body of Ekow had been deposited at the mortuary at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
