A young man identified only as Adama killed his father and also wounded his brother over a plate of soup. According to media reports, the shocking incident happened on Saturday at Kyinya, in the Kintampo North Municipality of the Brong Ahafo Region, Ghana.
An elder son of the deceased, one Gafaru told journalists that his younger brother, the suspect is noted for a deviant behavior and had persistently been threatening members of the family until his latest action.
He confirmed that there was an exchange of words between Adama and Nechema while his father tried to calm them because of a misunderstanding over a bowl of soup.
Gafaru explained that the soup was prepared by Nachema, his brother who survived the gunshot and still responding to treatment at the Kintampo Hospital.
According to him, Adama came home that evening in an anticipation of feasting with the soup only to realise that Nachema had finished it.
That, according to Gafaru provoked Adama who ranted and knocked down any available thing.
Gafaru said Adama finally picked a gun and shot the father and the brother sporadically which resulted in the death of the father while the brother received several bullet wounds on his buttocks.
The Kintampo police have confirmed the arrest of the suspect and said investigations are underway.
