Old Tafo: 2 arrested over alleged murder of 27-year-old man


A 27-year-old man has died while two others are battling life-threatening wounds following a communal clash between the youth of Tafo and Adabraka-Zongo in the Ashanti.

Reports remain sketchy about what triggered the incident which occurred last Wednesday (18 October), but Asaase News gathers that at least two persons have been arrested by the Tafo Divisional Police Command.

Already family of the deceased, Owusu Banahene, have urged the police to bring the perpetrators to justice.

“It’s the youth who have been having problems with Pankrono. They always come here, either to steal or fight. If something happens, they don’t know how to resolve their issue. They always come and fight, and it has been going on for centuries, when they come, and we call the police, they come to arrest the person, and the next day the person is walking freely.

“We will not let it slide unless one of them dies too, the deceased was set to travel today to Canada, and every documentation was ready. And the next day, you guys just stabbed him. I was called that someone has stabbed him to death over area fight,” he narrated.

He added, “I expect the police to arrest anyone involved or else actions that do not concern the police will take place. We will not sit down and allow our brother to be murdered just like that, if they don’t arrest all of them, action will be taken”.

Communal conflicts in these areas are rife as most cases lead to loss of life and destruction of property.

Opinion leaders have called for improved security in the area.
