A 43-year-old ex-convict, Kojo Asiedu, has reportedly been stabbed to death during an argument over a mobile phone at Sekondi in the Western Region.

According to a relative of the deceased, Emmanuel Arthur, a girlfriend of the suspect, borrowed the victim’s mobile phone to make a call and that led to the scuffle.

“The information I have is that my brother gave out his phone to a lady who is the girlfriend of the suspect to make a call. After making the call, she handed over the phone to my brother and he left but along the way, he dropped the phone.

“He was a little drunk and forgot where exactly he left the phone and went back to the lady. The lady then claimed she gave the phone back to him and that caused the argument. Her boyfriend came with a knife and stabbed my brother multiple times,” he narrated.

He said his brother was rushed to the Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital where he later died.

Arthur added that the body has since been deposited at the Funkoe morgue and the case has been reported to the police who have begun investigations.

The suspect, who has only been identified as Malor and lives in the same community as the deceased, is currently on the run.

“The suspect is currently at large. We have been looking for him since but he is nowhere to be found,” Arthur added.
