Butcher stabs brother to death over a bucket of water at Kasoa

A 28-year-old butcher, Muhammed Sodey, has stabbed his junior brother, Muhammed Ali to death following an argument over a bucket of water at the Kasoa New market abattoir in the Central Region.

Confirming the news to Class News’ regional correspondent, Calvis Tetteh, Kasoa district crime officer, DSP Obiri Yeboah, explained further that the two had an argument over a bucket of water Ali used to wash his hands after they had slaughtered an animal.

Sodey did not understand why Ali should use the water in the bucket, he got angry and stabbed Ali in the neck.

Sodey who is now wanted by the police took to his heels after the incident afraid of being lynched by his colleague butchers.

The body of Ali has since been deposited at the Winneba Trauma and Specialised Hospital morgue.

Chief butcher at the abattoir, Issa Musah, expressed shock at the incident adding that he kills animals for a living but killing a human being is “the most disgusting thing he has seen in his long years of work as a butcher.”

He advised his colleague butchers to control their temper at the slaughter house since they possess weapons that can kill.
