A woman has mercilessly stabbed her boyfriend to death and ran away after a misunderstanding over a land.
Akua Oparebea murdered her boyfriend over a disagreement
This is the 23-year-old unemployed woman, Akua Oparebea, who brutally stabbed her 36-year-old boyfriend to death following a misunderstanding.
According to Graphic Online, the suspect left her boyfriend in a pool of blood in their makeshift wooden structure at Taifa in Accra. She then escaped to her hometown at Suhum in the Eastern Region.
According to the Crime Officer of the Accra Regional Police Command, Chief Superintendent of Police Edward Kumi Faakye, the deceased, Moro Okai, was a driver who lived with Oparebea and her two sons in a kiosk.
Speaking further, he said investigation revealed that Okai had returned home from work at about 11p.m. and found that his girlfriend was not at home. He said Okai called Oparebea on phone to enquire about her whereabouts; she told him she had visited a parcel of land they had bought at Amasaman. When Oparebea returned home, according to Mr Faakye, Okai, who was not satisfied with the response she had given earlier, picked up a quarrel with her.
He said the two engaged in an exchange of words which degenerated into a fight during which Oparebea was said to have used a kitchen knife to stab Okai. After killing him, the woman shouted for help, but when help didn’t come she escaped with her two children to Suhum and left Okai to his fate.
It was the man’s brother, Patrick Opera, who lives in the same vicinity, that later found Okai in the pool of his own blood. He then took Okai to the 37 Military Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Mr Faakye said Oparebea was tracked to her hideout and arrested after a report was lodged with the Mile Seven Police.
