Girl, 19, Kills Boyfriend


Elizabeth Ackah

A 19-YEAR-OLD graduate of Mfantseman High School has found herself in the grips of the law after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend to death.

The suspect, Elizabeth Ackah, together with her sister, Rose Ackah, 22, were said to have stormed the house of Kenneth Boakye Ansah, 32, an engineer with Mantrac, on Tuesday night to fight him when the unfortunate incident happened.

The incident occurred during the light-off episode that enveloped Accra that night. The two suspects have consequently been detained at the Kaneshie Police Station, whilst the body of Kenneth Ansah has been deposited at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital morgue, awaiting autopsy. Elizabeth stormed her boyfriend’s house with kerosene and water to possibly cause havoc after he allegedly told her that their five-month relationship was over.

The suspect allegedly confronted Kenneth Ansah, the deceased, at a drinking spot, after meeting his absence in the house, and picked a fight with him. Kenneth, embarrassed by the actions of the suspect, left the spot and drove home, but was chased to the house by the suspect.

Elizabeth Ackah allegedly called her sister Rose Ackah from Dansoman to the boyfriend’s house, where they were still fighting. According to sources, Kenneth then picked up a knife, possibly to scare the girlfriend away, but he was overpowered and stabbed in the thigh as the struggle came to a head.

Eyewitnesses told DAILY GUIDE that all they heard was a scream for help, but when they got to the scene Kenneth Ansah was in a pool of blood. He allegedly died shortly on arrival at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

Narrating the incident to DAILY GUIDE, the suspect indicated that the victim, after their five-month relationship and having convinced her to have an abortion, told her it was over, after she detected he was having an affair with another girl.

“He had been cheating on me for the past months after the abortion, and when I realized and confronted him he told me it was over”. She said when she went to her boyfriend’s house, he asked his sister to beat her up and throw her out, but she managed to enter his room.

“Kenneth, after hitting my head on the wall several times, then went for a knife to threaten me to leave his house, and during the course of the struggle I overpowered him and unfortunately the knife stabbed him on the thigh”.

Elizabeth continued, “I did not even know that the knife had stabbed him because the lights were off. “People then rushed to the scene to carry him to hospital, where unfortunately he died later”.

The Kaneshie Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendant Michael Kporcuse Avadedsi, who confirmed the story, described the incident as pathetic, as a life had been lost in the process. He said investigations are on-going to ascertain the truth. The two sisters will consequently be arraigned before court soon.
