A Junior High School student has been arraigned before a Ho magistrate court in the Volta region for allegedly stabbing to death Wisdom Amu, a 19-year-old tailor-apprentice on Sunday, March 6, 2016.
According to Starr Fm, the teenage student whose name was withheld was among three other friends who engaged the late Wisdom Amu in a fight around the Ho sports stadium. This happened when the deceased was returning home from the 59th Independence Day celebrations at Jubilee park in Ho.
It was reported that the suspect pulled a knife and stabbed Amu on his left breast during the fight. Wisdom Amu who died as a result of the injury was later confirmed dead at the regional hospital.
The Ho municipal Police crime officer, ASP Adobo Apeatu told Starr News‘ Lambert Atsivor that, the suspect who was arrested on Monday March 7, confessed stabbing the deceased with a nail cutter during interrogation.
He was subsequently remanded into police custody by the court last Thursday and is to reappear today, Thursday March 17.
ASP Apeatu, however, noted that, the three other suspects who were initially arrested by witnesses at the scene of the incident have been released after investigations revealed they had no hand in the crime.
The rate of violent crimes have been on the increase in the country lately. Everyone is advised to be on the alert and also avoid situations that may put them at the risk of being assaulted.
