SHS student in critical condition for owing ¢5

Davis Nkrumah, a final year Senior High School (SHS) student at Twifu Hemang Technical Institute, is fighting for his life after being afflicted with cutlass wounds for a GH5 debt.

The event allegedly occurred in Jukwa, Twifu Hemang Lower Denkyira District, Central Region.

According to Kasapa News, the victim, who had been in school for a few weeks, had failed to pay a 5 debt owing to a guy named Salinko.

On Sunday, May 7, 2023, the suspect learned that the victim had returned home for the weekend. Salinko allegedly went to his residence and assaulted him with a machete without asking him any questions.

Shouts from the victim drew the attention of neighbours, who came to his aid and disarmed the suspect.

When the suspect was at school, an effort to collect his money from the victim was ineffective, so he resolved to collect the money when he returned.

He claims he has no idea what possessed him to bring a machete with him to attack the victim.

The student was taken to Cape Coast Teaching Hospital for treatment, and the suspect was turned over to Jukwa Police for investigation.
