Three individuals have been remanded in police custody for the alleged murder of a 28-year-old woman in the Bekwai Municipality of the Ashanti region. Mary Akosua Agyemang, the prime suspect and 25-year-old woman, reportedly accosted the deceased, Vida Ennin, for gossiping about her relationship with a man they had both dated.
The confrontation led to a physical altercation between the two women over who was the rightful fiancée of the man, an excavator operator.
According to reports, Mary left the scene and returned with a sharp knife, which she allegedly used to stab Vida in the face, breast, and palm. Vida bled to death from her injuries.
Mary, also known as Serwaa, was later arrested by the Bekwai police, along with two other individuals, Felicia Sarpong, 61, and Ernest Achirem, 63, who were accused of attempting to shield Mary from arrest.
The three suspects appeared before the Bekwai Circuit Court on Wednesday and have been remanded in police custody to assist in ongoing investigations. They are expected to reappear in court on April 26.
The incident has once again highlighted the dangers of physical altercations and the need for individuals to find peaceful ways to resolve conflicts.
The loss of a life is always tragic, and it is essential for authorities to ensure that justice is served for the deceased and their loved ones.
