Accra-based Kasapa FM reports that the suspect who lives at Aprapong in the Kwahu East District of Eastern Region, had an altercation with his stepson over a bowl of banku.

Mr. Adekakye had accused his 22-year-old stepson of consuming all the food in the house and was unhappy about the turn of events.

This led to an exchange of words between the pair, which later escalated into a feud. According to reports, moves by committee members in the community to resolve the matter proved futile.

According to him, his deceased attacked him first, leaving him with no other option but to defend himself.
