A barber is accused of murdering his SHS girlfriend, Abigail Mireku, a General Arts Form Two student at Akyem Nsutam in the Fanteakwa East District of the Eastern Region.
The issue shocked the Nsutam community following the incident on Thursday, June 2, 2023.
It’s unknown what prompted the barber, named Emeka, to murder the student.
According to eyewitnesses, it took a client of the batter who had gone to get his hair cut to notice there was blood in the shop.
He then alerted others, who discovered the student in a pool of blood.
The barber is suspected of slamming the young girl’s head with a padlock.
The police also discovered that the barber had used the trimming gadget to knot the girl’s neck.
When the police went to inspect the suspect’s room, they discovered nothing but a blood-stained Jalabia that he had been wearing on the day of the incident.
The landlord, who rented him the room and the shop, confirmed that the suspect and the deceased were dating.
