Four people have been arrested at Bomaa in the Tano North District of the Ahafo Region after a confrontation led to the stabbing to death and injury of another.

Unemployed 15-year-old, Emmanuel Oppong, died at the Bomaa Government Hospital while receiving treatment.

The 2nd victim, Collins Akpabli, an 18-year-old student of Bomaa Ebenezer International School is said to be stable and responding to treatment at the hospital.

Both were rushed to the hospital but Oppong could not survive.


According to the police, they had information on Monday, October 11, 2021, that some young men stormed the Bomaa town to cause mayhem over reasons still not established.
