'Jealous lover’ allegedly stabs 32-year-old man to death

A 32-year-old man, David Gyimah, has been stabbed to death at Tafo-Pankrono, a suburb of Kumasi.

The deceased was pronounced dead after he was rushed to the Tafo Government Hospital.

Police at Tafo-Pankrono have arrested an ex-boyfriend of the deceased’s girlfriend, Sulemana Gibril to assist in investigations.

Suspect Gibril is said to have gone to the house of his former girlfriend, Mercy Osei on Monday night, to collect his T.V set, and threatened her to be wary of her relationship with the deceased.

The suspect later returned to Ms Osei’s house to pick up his son.

According to Tafo-Pankrono Police, upon the arrest of the suspect at Atafua near Asuofia, the wife told police that the suspect came home that morning and removed his clothes, socks and sneakers and ordered her to wash them which she did.

She however denied seeing any blood stains on the clothes.

The suspect also denied the offence, and mentioned one Yaw Sarpong, alias “50 Cent”, and the wife as those who should be arrested and questioned over the murder of the deceased.

The couple are yet to be arrested. Police say they have begun investigations into the incident.

Meanwhile, the body has been deposited at the morgue of the Tafo Government Hospital awaiting autopsy.
