An alleged conflict over chieftaincy has led to the death of a bar owner, aged 38, in Adum Afrancho, which is located in the Atwima Kwanwoma District of the Ashanti Region. The town is currently experiencing an uneasy calm.
When Bright Yeboah sought to protect his younger brother, one Kwesi Brefo, who belonged to one of the competing factions in the argument, allegedly attacked him with a knife and stabbed him many times, according to witnesses.
Kwame Darko, his younger brother, was also stabbed multiple times and is currently in critical condition at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. He is fighting for his life.
According to a statement released by the Ashanti Regional Police Command, six individuals have been arrested in connection with the homicide.
The house where the late Yeboah had lived was filled with weeping and feelings of loss.
The family was taken aback by the series of unfortunate events that transpired in the days leading up to his passing.
Before he passed away, Mr. Yeboah worked as a manager of a tavern.
His grandfather, Atta Poku, related the events that transpired prior to his passing away to his grandson.
An eyewitness stated that the brother of the deceased, Mr. Darko, was discovered stabbed to death just a few meters away from the deceased’s tavern at 8:00 am on Sunday.
Unfortunately, the dead tried to save his brother, but he ended up dying from several stab wounds himself instead.
Checks conducted by Nhyira News revealed that the two individuals were in the thick of a disagreement regarding the chieftaincy.
Since then, the body of the deceased has been taken to the mortuary, and his brother is currently being treated at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in the meantime.
The deceased man is survived by a wife and their three children.
Widow Ruth Oppong is concerned about how the children will support themselves financially.
However, the family is demanding that justice be served.
