A woman believed to be in her thirties, Amina Moro, has been stabbed to death at Bibiani in the Western Region by a married woman believed to be her close friend.
The suspect, Mercy Nyamekye, 40 years, who’s on the run, lived in the same house with the deceased, who is a branch executive of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) at Bibiani Zongo.
Confirming the incident to Citi News, the Bibiani Ahwiaso-Bekwai District Police Commander, Superintendent Nana Kumi, said the deceased played a vital role in reuniting the suspect with her husband, after they had divorced shortly after their wedding.
Superintendent Nana Kumi said in what appears to be a fight over another man, Mercy Nyamekye, who was supposed to be staying happily with her husband who’s the Landlord, started picking quarrels with Amina about a new tenant in the house, whose name was only given as Moses.
He said confusion broke out some two months ago between the two after the suspect, accused Amina Moro of having an affair with Moses, something which did not go down well with her since she also appeared interested in Moses.
The constant misunderstanding according to the Police Commander, compelled Moses to move out of the house.
Superintendent Kumi further explained that on December 28, Amina and Moses who still had a close relationship, decided to visit Mercy’s husband, who is the Landlord.
“Between 9 and 10pm, Moses saw Amina on the streets and decided that they should go and wish the Landlord Joseph Nyanu and his wife Mercy Nyamkye a merry Christmas. On their way, Mercy Nyamekye hurriedly bypassed them and got to the house before the two arrived. When the two arrived, a scuffle ensued between Amina and Mercy again that required the intervention of the Mercy’s husband.”
The Police Commander said Mercy Nyamekye continued her scuffle with Amina but was stopped by her husband Joseph Nyanu, who locked her [Mercy] in the room, to prevent her from fighting Amina.
Unknown to Mr. Joseph Nyaunu, his wife jumped out of the room through the window, and stormed Amina’s room, where she stabbed her in the chest with a pair of scissors and a knife.
She absconded after the incident. Amina Moro died whiles she was being taken to the Bibiani Government Hospital.
Superintendent Kumi told Citi News the police are on the lookout for Mercy Nyamekye. The body of Amina, a Muslim, is undergoing Islamic rituals for burial.
