A 12-year-old boy, Kwadwo Acquah, has murdered his 60-year-old father, at Fomena in the Ashanti Region.
According to the District Police Commander, Superintendent Albert Nii Ochil, the boy is suspected to have cut his father’s arm with a knife in a struggle.
The boy is believed to have had a disagreement with his mother over an amount of GH₵ 70, and out of anger, resorted to cutting up her pair of slippers in pieces.
The commander told Adom News’ Isaac K. Normanyo that it was uncertain whether the money belonged to the mother or the son.
His father, Kwaku Akromah who was at home with his son at the time had tried to take the knife away from his son when the boy cut him in the process.
