The Accra Regional Police Command has arrested a 23-year-old unemployed woman, Akua Oparebea, for allegedly stabbing her 36-year-old boyfriend to death.

The suspect is said to have escaped with the children after the incident, leaving her boyfriend in a pool of blood in their makeshift wooden structure at Taifa in Accra.

Narrating the incident, the Crime Officer of the Accra Regional Police Command, Chief Superintendent of Police Edward Kumi Faakye, told the Daily Graphic that the deceased, Moro Okai, was a driver who lived with Oparebea and her two children in the makeshift structure.

He said Okai had returned home from work at about 11p.m. but realised that his girlfriend was not at home.

The victim picked up a quarrel with his girlfriend when she returned home as he was not satisfied with the response given him.

Mr Faakye said the two began exchanging words which led to the girlfriend apparently using a knife to stab her husband, Okai.

She subsequently left the scene and escaped with her children to Suhum in the Eastern Region.

The victim, Okai was later sent to the hospital by his brother but was pronounced dead.

Police, however, managed to arrest the suspect, Oparebea at her hideout.
