Cripple Slashes Woman, 120
Ngyiresia, a farming community near Sekondi was yesterday morning thrown into a state of shock when news broke that a 30-year-old cripple in the area, Sofo Akandi had done the unthinkable by inflicting cutlass wounds on a 120-year-old woman, Maame Ama Odoom for allegedly pouring water on him.
ASP Olivia Ewurabena Adiku, Western Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) who confirmed the story to DAILY GUIDE in an interview, indicated that the unfortunate incident happened at about 10:00am yesterday.
She noted that Akandi was walking on a path to an unknown destination and on reaching the spot directly behind Madam Odoom’s house, the old woman opened her windows and poured out water, some of which fell on the cripple.
Akandi who allegedly suspected that the water was the old woman’s urine, quickly returned to his house, brought out a cutlass and rushed to the old woman’s residence.
The Police PRO indicated that Akandi then used the cutlass to beat the old woman and in the process, inflicted cutlass wounds on Maame Odoom’s left and right arms and other parts of her body.
The old woman started shouting for help and fortunately for her some neighbours came around and managed to overpower the cripple and handed him over to the police.
The old woman was also rushed to the Essikado hospital for treatment.
ASP Adiku pointed out that Akandi had been placed in police custody while investigations into the case were ongoing.
