Man Kills Mom & Daughter over Charcoal
A MAN, believed to be in his 30s, has committed a cruel crime by butchering a mother and daughter to death, following a misunderstanding over charcoal.
The suspect, identified as Nurudeen Musah, reportedly, committed the heinous crime at Sapoa near Abenoa in the Sekyere Afram Plains District last Tuesday.

Sources said the murdered woman deals in charcoal, a business which she had been doing for many years to help support her husband to cater for the family.
The woman (name not known) recently engaged the services and indeed paid Musah an undisclosed amount of money to burn bags of charcoal for her.
The woman waited patiently for several days yet Musah could not produce the burnt charcoal as promised. The woman therefore became suspicious.
On Tuesday, the woman confronted Musah to produce her burnt charcoal and the suspect told her to accompany him to Sapoa near Abenoa for the charcoal.
The woman, accompanied by her 15-year-old daughter, therefore followed Musah to Sapoa but upon arrival there was no burnt charcoal as Musah promised.
A verbal altercation ensued between the woman and Musah and in the course of the hot verbal argument; Musah lost his temper and butchered the woman.
After realizing that her mother had been butchered with machete, the 15-year-old girl tried to escape but she was not quick enough as Musah butchered her also.
Musah then went into hiding but he was nabbed later on by the police.
Reports indicate that the cruel murder of the mother and daughter by Musah had sparked tension among residents in the Sekyere Afram Plains area.
