A student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has been stabbed to death in a misunderstanding over  a missing T-shirt in Kumasi.

The student was accused of stealing a T-shirt which led to the misunderstanding between the deceased and another suspect.

The sad incident took place on Saturday August 5 ,2023  at Kronum- Kwapra , a suburb in the Suame Municipality of the Ashanti Region.

Frimpong, who was studying politics and history in school, had been accused of stealing the shirt.

He was eventually declared dead at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. The Ashanti Region Police are reportedly on a manhunt for the suspect.

On Sunday, they invited some members of the deceased’s community to assist in the investigation. At the time of the incident, Frimpong was preparing to return to school to write his semester exams.
