A 12-year-old boy is reported to have murdered his 60-year-old father over GHS70. The incident happened at Adansi Pipiiso in the Fomena District of the Ashanti region.
According to a report by mynewsgh, the suspect absconded with his mother after inflicting machete wounds on his deceased father for accusing him of stealing his GHC70.
Fomena District Police Commander, Superintendent Albert Nii Otchere who confirmed the incident to Kumasi-based Angel FM said the boy had first turned his anger on his mother by slashing her slippers with the machete before turning onto his father to butcher him.
The police say they are on a manhunt for the boy and his mother.
The body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Peaceland Mortuary at Adiembra, near Adansi Asokwa pending autopsy and investigation.
