When two men decided to exchange blows over a woman at Kuntuse, near Amasaman, last Wednesday, little did one of them know that a stick picked by his opponent would cut short his life.

Elvis Atta Boateng, 42, allegedly met his untimely death in a confrontation with Vincent Nana Yaw Agyapong, 29, over a woman, Lydia Asante, whom the two combatants claimed was the love of their lives.

Immediately he was hit by the stick, Boateng fell unconscious and was taken to the Nsawam Government Hospital, where he was admitted for treatment.

But it would be his last stint with life as he died at the hospital the next day, Thursday, April 5, 2018.

Boateng is said to have died while receiving treatment at the same hospital.

The body has since been deposited at the Nsawam Government Hospital mortuary for preservation and autopsy.

After a report was filed with the Amasaman Police, Agyapong was immediately arrested and has since been in police custody.
