Police Hunt for Killers of Kumawood Actor
The Manhyia Divisional Police Command has intensified efforts to apprehend the killers of 35 year-old popular Kumawood actor, Abass Abdullai Blinkz, who was stabbed to death on Wednesday morning at Sawaba Akrem in the Asokore Mampong Municipality in the Ashanti Region.
Speaking to the media in Kumasi, the Divisional Commander, ACP Kwaku Buah, said the police were making progress in their investigations into the cold-blooded murder of the young actor.
“This morning, around 10:30am, a young man who is popularly known and called in Kumasi by the name Blinkz, an actor with Kumawood and a worker at Acheamfour Terminal, visited his master’s house at Akurem where he met the master’s wife and brother exchanging words. He tried to intervene, but the brother to his master’s wife took offence.
The master’s brother and another guy present then attacked Blinkz with knives and in the process, stabbed him. One stabbed him in the ribs and the other sliced him in the back. He was immediately rushed to the Manhyia Hospital where he was pronounced dead” – ACP Buah told the press.
He promised that his outfit would do all in their power to get to the bottom of the matter, and urged the public to remain calm.
“I would like to call on the youth to keep calm and be patient and give the police an ample time to thoroughly investigate the case. The issue has already happened though it is very painful for a young man to lose his life in this manner.” – ACP Buah indicated, adding that the body of the deceased had been conveyed to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for autopsy.
Blinkz is famous for playing the role of a notorious armed robber in many Kumawood movies. His first movie was ‘Abuburo Kosua’ produced by Kingdom Media House.
