A 46-year-old man has been killed and secretly buried after a fight over a missing dog meat at Assin Atwereboandah in the Assin North District of the Central Region of Ghana.
According to the District Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Moses Osakonor who confirmed the incident to Graphic Online’s reporter, Shirley Asiedu Addo, Daniel Akoto, popularly known to be called in the town as Abrantie, was reportedly hit with a stick last Friday February 25, 2022, which resulted to his death.
According to the police, one Kwame who is 49-year-old, and a brother to the main suspect, Thomas Dzinah Kume, a.k.a Sankara, had complained of his missing dog which the deceased, Akoto, told him that he has seen Sankara preparing soup with meat and was eating it with some friends.
According to reports, Sankara invited Akoto to join their meal after he has seen them eating which he declined.
Kwame then confronted his brother about his missing dog after hearing the news from Akoto which Sankara suspected it is the deceased who hinted what he saw to his brother.
