The victim identified simply as Tina, who resides in Ghana, was murdered by the 34-year-old man, Isaac Sackey, for allegedly stealing GH¢120 after he had solicited her services.

According to Ghanaian media, Sackey reportedly turned himself over to the police after he stabbed the deceased in the thigh and stomach.

Punch reports that Sackay approached Tina at a drinking spot in Accra, Ghana, where he had been drinking with some of his male friends.

The pair reportedly settled on a fee before heading to Sackey's home where they spent the night together.

During the interrogation at the Accra Regional Police Command, Sackey narrated the events leading up to Tina's death.

According to him, he left the deceased in the room and went to freshen up in the bathroom at about 2 am only to return and find Tina going through his things and realised that his GH¢120 cash had been stolen.

Confirming the incident, the Command’s Public Relations Officer, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Mrs. Effia Tenge, said that Sackey confessed to the police that he had immediately accused Tina of stealing the missing money, but she denied it.

Tenge said, “The suspect lives in a single room in some compound house at Spintex.

“In the course of the confrontation, the lady took a kitchen knife from the man’s room and threatened to stab him. But the man overpowered the lady and incidentally stabbed her after he managed to take back the knife from the lady.”

She added that after the incident, Sackey locked his room and went the Psychiatric Hospital to report what had happened but was directed by the hospital authorities to report himself to the police.

The police reportedly went to Sackey's house where Tina was found in a pool of her own blood.

Following an examination of the body of the deceased, the police discovered that Tina had been stabbed twice, going by the stab wounds in her stomach and thigh.

The body of the deceased was subsequently deposited at the Police Hospital morgue for preservation.

The family of the deceased is yet to identify her as Sackey claims that they met for the first time at the bar.

Some of Sackey's neighbours claim that the young man suffers from a mental disorder but that is yet to be verified by the police.

May the soul of the deceased rest in peace.
