Nigerian Student, Mustapha Musa Osmanu,Stabs His Brother to Death in Ghana



23 year old Nigerian student Mustapha Musa Osmanu,
studying Information Communication Technology (ICT) at
Sikkims Manipal University, Accra, has been arrested by the
Ghanian police for stabbing two of his brothers at their
home in Accra Newtown on Friday November 28th. One of
them died instantly.
Confessing to the crime, Musa said he was under the
influence of drugs when he stabbed his brothers. He said a
night before the attack, he’d taken 20 doses of Diazpam
5gm tablets, to enable him study.
“I admit committing the act. I regret my action and I even
wanted to commit suicide after the act but Jamiru took the
knife from me. I was out of control after taking the drug. I
regret having taken the drugs which enables me study for
more than five hours a day…” he said
On the day of the attack, Osmanu had sneaked into their
kitchen around 3.30pm, picked a knife and first stabbed
Jamiru Osman, 23, in the chest before stabbing Nazifi
Osman Mohammed, 27, in the chest and the stomach,
leading to his death.
Nazifi, the oldest among the three brothers was pronounced
dead on arrival at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital. The other
brother is now in a stable condition at the same hospital.
Speaking on the incident, the Accra Regional Police
Commander, DCOP Christian Tetteh Yohuno said on
November 29th, the day after the attack, Musa went to the
police station to report, claiming that he and his brothers had
been attacked by armed robbers. His claim was later refuted
by Jamiru who survived the attack.
He revealed that it was Musa who attacked them while they
were sleeping that fateful day. “Jamiru narrated that after
seeing the intestines of Nazifi gushing out and blood flowing
from his stomach, he immediately had to pretend he did not
see the one who stabbed them after he was asked by
suspect whether he saw something. The victim said if he
had said yes, Musa Osmanu would have killed him instantly
which was why he said he did not know the one who
stabbed them,” DCOP Yohuno said.
Police believe that Musa Osmanu committed the act when
he learned that the victims had been given about $4,000
from their elder brother to pay their school fees, a claim
Osmanu has denied. “I did not commit the offense because
of the money ”
He said Musa is expected to be charged to court soon for
