Kwesi More, a 49 year old accountant at the St. Paul?s Senior High School in Koforidua in the Eastern Region was on Wednesday remanded into Police custody for allegedly stabbing his daughter to death at Saltpond.

He pleaded not guilty and will be re-arraigned on Wednesday, February 5.


Prosecuting, Police Chief Inspector Charles Anku told the Cape Coast Circuit court, presided over by Mrs. Florence Otu that, on Wednesday, January 1, the daughter More, Ama Aidoo, visited her father at his residence in Saltpond in the Central Region to discuss issues concerning a family land he had sold to his colleague worker.

He said the discussion resulted in an argument between the two and out of anger, Kwesi entered his room and came out wielding a knife and threatened to stab Ama if she does not leave the room immediately.

Chief Inspector Anku said Kwesi tried to push Ama out of the room but she refused to leave, insisting that the issue must be resolved before she leaves, a struggle ensued between them and in the process Kwesi stabbed her in the stomach.

He said Ama was immediately rushed to the Saltpond District Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

A complain was lodged at the police station and Kwesi was arrested and charged with the offence.
