NE/R: Man murdered over stolen guinea fowl
A 48 year old man has allegedly been beaten to death by a 29 year old young man at Yizesi in the Mamprugu Moaduri district of the North East region. The death was as a result of a confusion that ensued between the two over a stolen guinea fowl.
The deceased, Yaro accused Basiru of stealing his guinea fowl two weeks ago and ask him to pay 25 ghana cedis for it which Basiru did. However, the matter degenerated yesterday leading to a bloody fight. It is not clear what renewed the matter again on Monday, June 22.
The unfortunate incident happened between the hours of 7:43pm to 8:00pm Monday night at the residence of the deceased where they both (deceased and accused) exchanged unpleasant words leading to a fight.
48 year old Yaro (deceased) was hit with a stick in the head by 29 year old Basiru and was rushed to the Yizesi clinic for treatment but was pronounced dead at 3:00AM Tuesday morning June 23, 2020.
Upon the pronouncement of Yaro’s death, his family members picked up Basiru and angrily beat him to pulp. Basiru was later tired on a rope at the residence of the deceased with blood oozing all over his body.
Police in the area have since commenced investigation into the matter.
