A 34 year old man, Isaac Sackey, has surrendered himself to the Police after stabbing a Nigerian lady to death in his home at Spintex, in Accra. He inflicted knife wounds on the face and stomach of the lady whose name is only given as Tina.
The Gt. Accra Police Command said a confrontation broke between the two when the lady stole GHS 120 ( about N8k) from him after they’ve had a good time together. The deceased is alleged to have threatened to stab Isaac, but rather ended up being stabbed with her own knife in the brawl that ensued between them.
Sackey was said to have approached Tina for sex at a drinking spot in Accra, where he had gone to have drinks with his male friends. The two were said to have agreed on a fee for the service before heading to Sackey’s house .
Narrating the circumstances leading to Tina’s death, Sackey said he had gone to the bathroom to freshen up at about 2 a.m., leaving Tina in the bedroom. He claimed that when he returned he saw the Nigerian going through his belongings and realised that GH¢120 cash had been stolen. .
Sackey told the police that he immediately accused the woman of stealing the money but she denied it. In the course of the confrontation, she took a kitchen knife from his room and threatened to stab him. .
But the man overpowered the lady and incidentally stabbed her after he managed to take back the knife from the lady.” Sackey locked his room and then went to the Psychiatric Hospital to report the issue where he was directed by the hospital authorities to report himself to the police. .
Some neighbours of the suspect claimed he had a mental disorder, but the police are yet to verify that information.
