Girl In Police Custody Over Alleged Murder
The Juaso police has arrested an 18-year-old girl, Mary Nti Gyimah, for allegedly causing the death of a colleague at Obogu, in the Asante-Akim South Municipality.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Andrew Anyani, the Municipal Police Commander confirming this to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), said the incident happened on February 5.
He said what started as a brawl between the two turned tragic when the suspect was alleged to have violently smashed the head of Comfort Frimpomaa, the deceased, on the ground.
The deceased is said to have immediately lost consciousness in the process.
She passed on shortly on admission at the Juaso District Hospital, where she was rushed to after the incident.
Giving details, DSP Anyani said, the two girls lived in the same vicinity and had engaged in a fight on February 3, following a misunderstanding.
Two days later, at about 1600 hours, the suspect is said to have approached the deceased when she was preparing supper and requested for a toilet key to attend to nature's call, but the deceased refused to hand it over.
An argument ensued resulting into another fight during which the suspect is alleged to have pounced on the deceased, gripped and pushed her violently to the ground.
The deceased head hit the ground so hard that she blacked out immediately. She was then rushed to Juaso District Hospital where she died shortly on admission.
DSP Anyani said the suspect would be put before court to facilitate the process of sending her docket to the Attorney General's office for advice.
