The Ghanaian Times gathered that on Monday, at about 4 p.m, a complainant went to the police at Darkuman and reported that he received a call from a hostel cleaner that a female guest had been found stabbed in a room at the hostel.

The police reportedly proceeded to the scene of crime and found bloodstains on the victim’s bed and the floor, and also discovered a pair of scissors and a knife.

Further investigations revealed that the victim was rushed to a hospital (name withheld) in Accra for medical treatment.

When the police proceeded to the facility, they spotted a female victim at the emergency ward, and police examination on the body revealed multiple wounds on the body.

In another development, the police were probing the break-in into the Hiers Chapel International House of Love Church, at Bubiashie, Accra.
