A 30-year-old man stabbed his girlfriend to death on Valentine’s Day for refusing him sex.
The incident happened at Suminakese in the Eastern Region.
Ebenezer Yaw Darko, also known as ‘Power’, according to information gathered by ClassFMonline.com, went into a fit of rage after his girlfriend, Yaa Nimakoa, 26, on whom he spent GHS500 on Valentine’s Day, refused him sex to climax the day for lovers.
Yaw Darko, a small-scale miner, is on the run, according to local reporter Anafena Neku, who confirmed the incident to ClassFMonline.com.
The incident has been reported to the Suminakese Police Command, which has opened investigations into the matter.
According to Anafena Neku, the deceased, who did not die immediately after the stabbing, told journalists her boyfriend, whom she has been dating for five years, attempted raping her after returning home around 10pm after an outing.
The enraged boyfriend then grabbed a knife and stabbed the petty trader during the struggle.
The victim died as she was being rushed to the hospital. Anafena Neku told ClassFMonline.com that the victim’s parents said they had always been against the relationship because Yaw Darko was mentally unstable sometimes.
He said they attempted preventing their daughter from going out with the suspect on Valentine’s Day but she went with him anyway.
