Palm wine tapper stabs friend to death after dreaming that he slept with his girlfriend

A Ghanaian palm wine tapper who claims his dreams always manifest has stabbed his friend to death after seeing him in a dream sleep with his girlfriend because he didn’t want it to happen in reality.

Bloody knife

The incident reportedly occurred at Wawasi in the Afigya Kwabre South District on Friday, October 8, 2021.

Accra-based rainbow radio reports that the 45-year-old palm wine tapper identified as Desco has admitted to the crime.

“I lured my friend into the bush and unknown to him, I stabbed him from the back. He fell down and I repeated it till he gave up his ghost,” the suspect is quoted as having confessed.

As if the alleged murder of his friend was not heartless enough, the suspect again stabbed another person the following day, claiming that the victim treated him unfairly in his dream and that he was also part of the challenges facing the community.

Fortunately, the victim survived the attack and has been on admission at the Ankaase Hospital.

But the suspect who was bent on hurting the victim went further to stab the second son of his second victim.

He reportedly confessed to all the bloody acts after he was arrested by residents of the Wawasi.

It is not clear if the suspect is mentally sound.
