Nigerian Man Stabbed To Death In Ghana Over A Stolen Tooth Brush
A Nigerian man has been stabbed to death in a most horrific way by his close friend over a most frivolous matter. A brawl between two Nigerians living at the Beach Drive Road at
Nungua in Accra over a stolen tooth brush has led to the death of one, it was reported. It was gathered that Marvelous Okere, 26, and a trader identified as Sunday Orga had engaged in a violent fight over stolen tooth brush on Saturday.
Speaking to Reporters, the Greater Accra Regional Police spokesperson Afia Tenge, said in the
“course of the confrontation” Okere took a bottle, broke it and “stabbed the left rib of the deceased.” “He bled profusely and when he was rushed to the LEKMA Hospital he passed on,”
However, while telling his own version of the story, the suspect said he stabbed his colleague because he “slapped” him. He is being held in police custody as investigation continues.
The remains of Orga, 27, has been deposited at the Police Hospital morgue “awaiting autopsy.”
