Upon inspection of the room, a pair of scissors, screwdriver, hammer, were found beside the deceased which it is believed the Suspect boyfriend used to stab her.
The mother of the deceased Ekua Essumamba in an interview said in the morning of Sunday October 1, 2023, she noticed that her daughter, Patient Obeng didn’t sleep in the house, so she decided to go and check on her friend [suspect’] house only to see the lifeless body of her daughter half naked.

The suspect was later found by residents drinking weedicide and was writhing in pain and brought him home and called the police.
Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has been since been deposited at the Saltpond Government Hospital Mortuary, while the suspect is also receiving treatment at the Hospital monitored by the Mankessim Jedu Divisional Police command.
