On Sunday afternoon, Gafaru allegedly succeeded in doing so as he attacked his relative, Ibrahim on his farm with a cutlass.

An eyewitness at the scene alerted residents. A group of men later arrived at the scene and also attacked Gafaru and tied him up to a tree. The attackers were said to have fled leaving the two victims.

The West Mamprusi District Police Commander, DSP Sarpong Aboagye said his team rushed to the scene when they were alerted, and found Ibrahim lying on a dusty floor with blood oozing from his neck.
