After reportedly stabbing a drug dealer to death following a brawl in Krofrom, a suburb of the Kumasi Metropolis, a PETTY merchant was apprehended.

The drug dealer Kofi Owusu allegedly ordered his boys to sell illicit substances at the same location where the 29-year-old petty trader George Mensah does business in Krofrom.

On June 28, 2024, at 1:50 p.m., Owusu once more dispatched his lads to sell narcotics at the location where Mensah does business. Then Mensah drove the lads of Owusu away.

Owusu was incensed by Mensah’s behaviour and went to the location to cause damage to a wooden structure that housed Mensah’s business activity.

This led to an open fight between Mensah and Owusu, during which the former is said to have fatally stabbed the latter with a sharp knife.

“At the crime site, investigation revealed that the dead was a drug dealer at Krofrom, and the suspect was a small-time trader in the same vicinity.

According to the allegations, the deceased often dispatches his boys to the location where the suspect sells narcotics. That when the deceased and his boys carried out the same deed on June 28, 2024, the suspect ejected them from the area.
