Fisherman stabs colleague to death

Half Assini (W/R), Jan. 26, GNA - The Half Assini Police is searching for a fisherman from Abrebeano near Komenda in the Central Region who stabbed his colleague at Effasu near Half Assini, resulting in his death.

A police source told the Ghana News Agency at Half Assini on Wednesday that the deceased and the suspect whose names were being withheld for security reasons were both fishermen at Effasu near half Assini in the Jomoro District of the Western Region.

He said the suspect gave his fish to the deceased's wife whose name was not immediately known to sell for him with the consent of her husband.

The source said somewhere along the line the deceased suspected the suspect of having an affair with his wife and warned them to stop that relationship but they failed to adhere to the warning.
