Man, 21, stabbed to death, thrown into drain at Effia

Man stabbed to death:

What began as a mere exchange of words between

two friends has cost the life of a 21-year-old

Emmanuel Ato Simpson at Effia in the Effia Kwesiminstim

Municipal of the Western Region.

The deceased, according to an eyewitness, was stabbed

many times and thrown into a a main drain at about 10pm on Saturday.

He said the quarrel happened after severe warnings to the

deceased and his friends to stop smoking marijuana at the

back of the assailant’s house but they were adamant.

A fight then ensued between them that night where the

deceased threatened his accuser with a knife.

The duo, the eye witness said, fell into the open gutter

where his assailant had an upper hand over him.

He said Ato was later taken to the hospital where

he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Mena Esiah, a fetish priestess of the Effia community

says she’s worried about the bad behaviour of young people

in the community and prayed that city authorities will

engage them in profitable ventures.

 “Because they are not working and are always idle they

engage themselves in so many social vices. The government

must come to their aid in getting the youth something to do.”

The Effia Police confirmed the incident and said investigations

have commenced into the matter to bring the perpetrators to book.
