A 20year old runs crazy; kills father and neighbor, two others badly hurt

Sambolga, a farming community, in the Bongo District of the Upper East Region, has been left badly shaken after a young man run amok, clubbing his own biological father and a neighbor to death, under very bizarre circumstances.

Akenlbona Alagmina, aged about 20 years, also violently attacked and seriously hurt two other people. Alagmina was said to be watching television (TV) with his younger brothers in the house of the father (now deceased), when all-of-a-sudden and without any provocation, he pounced on one of them, and started beating the hell out of the boy.

Unable to take the punishment, the victim shouted for help and that attracted the attention of their father, he rushed to the place, ostensibly to save the boy, who was being belabored.

Alagmina then grabbed a piece of heavy wood, hit the father many times, as he fell on the ground and died.

A female neighbor could not stand the sight of the young man hitting his own biological father, the way he was doing, and made a daring attempt, to try rescuing him and that proved to be a tragic mistake.

She ended up suffering the same fate as the man she had wanted to save - clubbed her to death.

Alagmina would not be sobered by the mess, the stomach-churning killings and was bent on causing more harm and pain.

He set upon his brother’s wife, who was then breastfeeding her baby, punching and kicking her.

Another neighbor courageously attempted to restrain him but got himself into trouble – he survived with severe injuries.

This neighbor, and the breastfeeding mother, were rushed to the Bongo District Hospital where they are on admission, receiving treatment.

Alagmina was eventually overpowered by the police, arrested and being held at the Bongo District Police Headquarters.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Peter Adoone, the Bongo District Police Commander, confirming the incident, said it happened on Friday, November 19.

They have begun their investigations and he hinted that, Alagmina would be undergoing psychiatric examination.

His mental state would have to be evaluated by medical professionals. He added that the bodies of the two deceased persons had been deposited at the regional hospital’s morgue for autopsy.
