The Jacobu Police in the Ashanti Region have begun investigations into the circumstances that led to the stabbing death of a final year student of Tweneboa Kodua High School (SHS) in Mansa Odaha.

Daniel Osei-Mensah, a 16-year-old student who also ran a motorcycle business in Odaha in Amansi West District during the holidays, was killed by unknown assailants last Friday.

The assailants reportedly stabbed him in the lower abdomen and chest and used batons, and three suspects have been arrested in connection with the death.

According to the police report, the attackers lured the victim into the bush and killed him.

“We received a call from Fiancomakh after several hours looking for Osei and his motorcycle,” an eyewitness told

“A few moments after the call, we were moving in groups to confirm such terrible news. On the way to the crime scene, we got another call saying that we had passed a police car so we had to go back. After returning, we met a police car with the body of the deceased wrapped in black rubber in the back of the car, but we followed them to their police station,” the eyewitness said.

The mother of the deceased, Adwoa Mary, popularly known as ‘Adwoa Waki’, said: “I have lost something dear to my heart and I pray that the Almighty will deal with all the criminals.”

Akwasi Boameh, Asei-Mensah’s father, said: “I am alone with my Creator and I think only God can heal my wounds for me.”

The Member of Assembly for Odaha Constituency, Isaac Bronya, has called on the Inspector General of Police to urgently expedite the opening of a newly constructed police station in his area to curb crime. –

This is not the first time Tweneboah Koduah SHS has faced a stabbing of a student. In 2016, a 20-year-old SHS final year fine arts student injured a colleague.

According to the police, the incident occurred when an argument broke out between the suspect and his colleague who was later taken to Agoga Presbyterian Hospital.
