Evangelist stabbed to death by brother in-law over money


    The Assin Fosu police have arrested an unemployed man for allegedly stabbing his brother in-law to death at Assin Fosu.

    The Assin Fosu Divisional Police commander, Chief Supt Henry Bacho who disclosed that the the incident happened Thursday night following a quarrel between the two over an undisclosed amount of money.

    He said the deceased, Acheampong, 46, is an evangelist in the area and the bread winner of his household.

    He said Acheampong had been engaged by a neighbor to do some job for him but upon his return Thursday night refused to give the suspect, his brother in-law, Kofi Richard, 21 money when he asked him for money.

    This, according to Chief Supt Henry Bacho resulted in a quarrel between the two during which Kofi threatened to kill his brother in-law if he did not give him his share.

    After the threat, Kofi Richard was said to have brought a knife from his room and allegedly stabbed his brother-in-law through the neck, killing him instantly.

    He is reported to have fled the scene immediately before the police could get there but was arrested later.

    The suspect is currently in the grips of Assin Fosu police while the body of the evangelist has been deposited at the St. Francis Hospital morgue in Assin Fosu.
