The young man alleged to have killed a resident of the Commonwealth Hall of the University of Ghana, Legon has been identified as George Osei Mensah.

George, 23, is said to have stabbed Chief Tipsy (the deceased) in the hall after a heated argument.

The two were part of a group of former residents of the Hall (Old Vandals) who attended the funeral of another ‘fellow’ at Amrahia.

According to a statement by the Old Vandals Association, the argument between the two started in the bus in which they were travelling and attempts by colleagues to get them to ceasefire proved futile.

“The argument became heated and the two had to be separated on several occasions by others. It went on and on. So, when we got to Atomic Junction, the driver was advised to stop and the two were thrown out of the bus. Others joined them.

“When they got to the Hall, they had not stopped. It was at this time that the killer allegedly grabbed the knife of the khebab seller and cut the victim several times with it. The victim bled profusely and was rushed to the Legon Hospital by the killer and some Vandals,” portions of the statement read.

Reports indicate that George is not a member of the hall. However, he has been an active participant of every Vandal program because he drums and is a member of the supporters group, Vandasu-Vandals Supporters Union.

The police have begun investigations into the killing which occurred on Saturday evening. The officers have cordoned off the crime scene for assessment and collection of evidence.

Meanwhile, George is in the custody of the police.
