ONE SUSPECT has been arrested and the police are on the heels of about four other suspects in connection with the butchering of a man at Krofrom in Kumasi.
Suspect Nana Osei Gyeabuor was, reportedly, smoked out from his hiding hole few days ago by the police, who have since started interrogating him over the death of Kwabena Azure.
Azure, according to reports, was attacked by about five men, who were all wielding sharp machete. They cruelly butchered him and he bled profusely, leading to his death.
The bloody incident, which happened on the evening of January 25, 2023, has been linked to a reprisal gang attack by residents of Krofrom in the Manhyia North Constituency.
According to reports making rounds in the densely populated community, there are two deadly gang groups in Krofrom and Azure is said to belong to one of the groups.
Azure’s group, allegedly, launched an unprovoked attack on a member of the rival group, which resulted in a severe body injuries to the victim somewhere last year.
The attacked group then decided to retaliate on January 25, 2023 as they heartlessly butchered Azure with sharp machete, leading to loss of blood and his untimely demise.
According to reports, the police in Kumasi are aware that about five people butchered Azure to death so they are doing everything possible to arrest the remaining four.
