Butcher hacks brother to death over bucket of water

Muhammed Sodey, a 28-year-old butcher, has hacked his younger brother, Muhammed Ali to death over an argument over a bucket of water at the Kasoa New market abattoir in the Central Region.

Kasoa District Crime Officer, DSP Obiri Yeboah, speaking to the media explained that, the two had an altercation after Ali used a bucket of water they had fetched to wash his hands after they had slaughtered an animal.

Sodey who was angry because he did not understand why Ali should use the water in the bucket run his knife through Ali’s neck.

Sensing fear of being lynched by colleague butchers, Sodey took to his heels and is now wanted by the police.

The body of Ali has since been deposited at the Winneba Trauma and Specialised Hospital morgue.

Chief butcher at the abattoir, Issa Musah, expressed shock at the incident adding that he kills animals for a living but killing a human being is “the most disgusting thing he has seen in his long years of work as a butcher.”

He advised his colleague butchers to control their temper at the slaughter house since they possess weapons that can kill.
