In Nyinahin, a fight over ownership of a woolen carpet used for mining turned deadly when a startling incident claimed the life of a 32-year-old man.

After a furious argument, Okyere Darko, the victim’s friend, is said to have fatally stabbed Kwaku Poku with a knife.

After the argument got out of hand, Darko allegedly used a pair of scissors to stab Poku in the neck on January 5, 2024, at around 10:40 a.m.

With the intention of saving his life, Poku was taken to the Manso-Abore Hospital when he was bleeding heavily. Regretfully, when they arrived, he was declared dead.

The police, confirming the tragic incident, revealed that Okyere Darko, the suspect, has gone into hiding since committing the heinous crime.

The Atwima Division police document outlined the sequence of events, stating that the fight erupted over the possession of the woolen carpet used for mining.

“On 5/01/24 at about 10:40 am, Adobewura Police received a distress call from Hon. Agyenim Boateng, the Assembly member-elect for Achiase-Atuntuma Electoral Area,” the report disclosed.

“In the course of events, Okyere Darko stabbed the neck of the deceased with a pair of scissors, making him fall unconscious and had been rushed to Manso-Abore Hospital for treatment” he added.

Efforts to locate the suspect and the murder weapon proved unsuccessful initially.

The police report further detailed that a search party, comprising volunteers from Atuntuma and adjoining areas, has been dispatched into the bush to capture the suspect.

Meanwhile, the police are working to obtain photographs of the suspect for publication and retrieve the weapon used in the crime.

The deceased’s body has been deposited at Nyinahin Community Mortuary for autopsy as investigations into the tragic incident continue.
