FEATURED STORY Why Christian Clergymen Are Unqualified To Pronounce Blessings On Their Con...


Man kills friend with a punch

What started as a mere exchange of words between two friends, Kofi Antwi and Akwasi Yeboah, at Asante Mampong in Ashanti, turned sour when Yeboah allegedly landed a hefty blow on the throat of his friend, killing him instantly.

After the incident, which took place yesterday at about 8 am near the Electricity Company's office in the full glare of many people, Yeboah attempted to escape but was apprehended by the crowd and handed over to the police.

Police Chief Inspector, Amissah who is handling the case, confirmed this story but declined to give details.

Eye-witnesses, however said that it all started when Yeboah, a secondhand clothe dealer, complained about the loss of some of his items and Antwi responded that he knew the culprit.

On hearing that, Yeboah demanded to know the person, insisting that failure to mention the name meant that Antwi was the culprit.

That generated into an argument during which Yeboah lost his temper and landed the hefty blow, that ended Antwi's life.
