The incident happened at a farming community called Akokoamong near Pakoso in the Asokore Mampong District of the Ashanti Region.
Narrating the sad incident to Nana Ampratwum on SilverFM breakfast show dubbed Omanbapa Morning Show, Emmanuel Owusu Bannie, an eye witness indicated that the deceased had a little misunderstanding with his younger brother Owura (suspect) and threatened to beat him.
According to Emma, Owura (the suspect) informed his older brother in vicinity to revenge on his behalf.
The brother hired thugs (rascals) who stormed the town(Akokoamong) to fight for the younger brother.
The confusion was separated by the community members but two of the thugs refused to return to the place. They later meandered themselves to the room where Kofi Aquah was hiding.
Unknowingly to the deceased, he tried to step out from the room but was unfortunately accosted by his attackers who ‘slaughtered’ his neck with a sharp machete locally known as ‘Langa”.
Kofi Aquah a.k.a Alabista ‘gave up the ghost’ instantly.
The eye witness, Emmanuel Owusu also disclosed that, the youth in the community after hearing the dastardly act gathered and arrested one of the suspects whom they subsequently lynched and burnt him to death.
