Tension is mounting at Akyem Kusi in the Eastern region following a fight between two women that led to the death of one Tuesday morning.
Relatives and friends of the deceased from Takorase, also in the region, reportedly stormed the Kusi Township to avenge the death of their kinswoman who was murdered for sleeping with the boyfriend of the suspect. The suspect, according to reports, set her rival ablaze after catching her in bed with her man.
