An Accra Magistrate Court has remanded a labourer in custody following the death of one David Gamado at Ablekuma-Olebu, a suburb of Accra.

The labourer, named Azumah Yankah is said to have asked the deceased, Gamado for GH¢2 but the two had a misunderstanding which resulted in a fight between them.

The two were separated but Yankah entered a house close to the scene and brought out two machetes to attack Gamado but he was conquered and one of the machetes was taken from him.

But Yankah reportedly used the other machete to slash the left hand of Gamado which resulted in a deep wound on his arm, causing him to bleed profusely.
