A 19-year old bar attendant, Juliette Akworkor Obu, met her untimely death on the night of Monday when she was allegedly butchered by her boyfriend at Doryumu in the Shai Osudoku District of the Greater Accra Region
Reports gathered by The Chronicle revealed that Juliette, a Junior Secondary School (JSS) graduate, went to rent a room at Doryumu-Abeka where she lived with her twin sister and their mother, a single parent. Juliette was said to have been in a relationship with the 21-year old young man only known as Shata.
The report had it that Shata recently destroyed a mobile phone he bought for her (girl friend) due to a misunderstanding, but opted to replace it with an iPhone. Juliette was still not happy with the behaviour of her boyfriend, so decided to keep her distance.
In the morning of Monday, she went to fix her hair at a salon and proceeded to work at the spot near the Puma Filling Station at Shai Hills. Later in the night, Shata, who lives in nearby Afienya, reportedly called to say that he was around to see her. The two of them were seen close to the house of the deceased, near the Doryumu D/A Schools.
Suddenly a cry emanated from the direction where the two lovebirds were standing.
People rushed there only to find the body of Juliette lying in a pool of blood, but Shata was nowhere to be found.
A physical examination of the body revealed machete wounds to the hand with the throat slit.
Meanwhile, police in Doryumu have arrested Shata’s brother and mother who have been placed in custody to assist with investigations.
