A drinking spree involving two galamsey operators at Potroase, near Kyebi in the Eastern Region, last Friday became nasty when one of them stabbed the other for allegedly flirting with his girlfriend.
The suspect, Kofi Korang, is reported to have used a broken bottle to stab his friend, Kwasi Marfo, 35, in his left chest and head.
A number of residents of the area are said to have rushed to the scene of the stabbing where Marfo lay in a pool of blood and managed to send him to the Kyebi Government Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
According to East Akim Municipal Police Commander, DSP Teye Martey, the incident reportedly took place at the drinking spot where the two had gone for a drink, during which the suspect was said to have accused the deceased of flirting with his girlfriend.
