Student in court for stabbing friend to death

A student, who allegedly stabbed his friend to death with a pair of scissors following a misunderstanding over a lady, has appeared before an Aflao District Court.

Evans Sidigbey, aged 25, had been arraigned on a charge of abetment and murder.

His plea was not taken and was remanded in prison custody to be brought back on April 04, this year.

His accomplice, one Smallvi Alomeso, alias Biggie, who allegedly instigated and supported the feud and finally passed on his scissors to the suspect to stab the deceased, is on the run.

The facts of the prosecution were that the deceased, Mawuko Ajalu, aged 26, and the accused were friends but lived at different suburbs of Aflao.

He said the deceased and one other, Mami Kpame, an Aflao-based businessman, at about 1300 hours on March 15, this year, were on their way from a hotel at Atisukope, a suburb of Aflao and met the accused and a lady under a coconut tree nearby.

The prosecution said the deceased jokingly told the lady he would like her to be his girlfriend, to which the lady retorted no, and the deceased then replied back that he also did not like her because of the rashes at her back.

According to the prosecution, the lady began crying over the comment, and Biggie, who was then cutting some leaves suspected to be Indian hemp with a scissors, urged the accused not to let the deceased go free with the comments about the lady.

Sidigbey, on Biggie’s promptings picked a fight with the deceased, in the process Biggie threw his  scissors to the accused, who picked it and stabbed the deceased with it below his left breast.

The deceased was rushed to the Ketu South Hospital at Aflao, but was pronounced dead on arrival, while the accused, sensing danger of been lynched, took to his heels and was pursued by Kpame and others until he entered the police charge office.

The body has since been sent to the Police Hospital morgue in Accra for autopsy.

Meanwhile a duplicate docket on the case has been sent to the Attorney General’s office for advice.
