The Ashanti Regional Police Command have confirmed that the level 200 student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology was killed for demanding money owed him by a friend.
The Public Relations Officer for the Ashanti Regional Police Command, DSP Godwin Ahianyo, told Citi FM, that “the suspect lured the deceased to a nearby [location] and killed him.
According to the suspect, he owed the deceased an amount of GH¢100 and couldn’t pay up when he (the deceased) came asking, for which reason he killed him.”
“We find the story a little hard to believe because why will he resort to taking his friend’s life over GH¢100.? We suspect there is more and we are going to ensure we get the full details.”
It has emerged that a level 200 student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology who was killed at Sewua in the Ashanti Region demanded GH¢300 owed him by his friend Emmanuel Boateng who is a tailor’s apprentice.
The suspect Emmanuel Boateng is reported to have hit the head of Nana Gyamfi with a stick after he had asked him to accompany him to his mother’s building site.
