16-year-old girl’s arm chopped off over bathroom slippers

The left arm of a sixteen-year-old first year Junior High School (JHS) student, Josephine Amoabeng has been severed following a brawl with a young man on a farm at Komfour-Nkwanta in the Adansi Akrofuom District of the Ashanti region, MyNewsGh.com reports.

Father of the girl, Kwadwo Sakyi who narrated the incident to MyNewsGh.com said his daughter is currently battling for her life at the Obuasi Government Hospital.

He said the girl had followed some friends to cook on a farm where a fight ensued between her and the young man over bathroom slippers (chalewote) that reportedly belonged to the boy but had been worn by the girl.

According to Mr Kwadwo Sakyi, the brawl resulted in the boy sustaining some slight injuries, which then caused him to vow to retaliate.“So after they had finished eating and my daughter was washing the bowls, he took a machete and hacked of her left arm and bolted; the others also left her in the pool of blood and run away”, he narrated.

“So when she was subsequently rushed to the hospital when she managed to walk home, the doctors said nothing could be done to salvage the situation”.

The boy has since been arrested and granted bail and facing prosecution.
