A 23-year-old man has been stabbed to death by a teenage girl in Sunyani, the Brong Ahafo Region capital, following an argument over one Ghana cedi note. Ohene Asante, a Computer Technician, died shortly after he was struck in the chest with a sharp knife by the 16-year-old girl. It was learnt that the two had been involved in a brief altercation over a GH¢1 note said to have been removed from the deceased man’s pocket by the teenager. The girl has since gone into hiding, but police say they are looking for her to assist with investigation into the bizarre incident.
Sunyani District Commander, DSP Franklin Kramoh, says he is confident his men would get to the bottom of the matter.
Thomas Oppong Asante, an uncle of the 23-year-old man told Joy News that the incident has devastated the family. “The harm has already been done. A young man, a strong guy, you should see him. So in fact, the family has lost a lot. God knows best,” said Mr Oppong.
