Micah Perdjo, the younger brother of the deceased, who brought him to the Wench Methodist Hospital told Joy News, his brother died around 6 am on Tuesday without saying a word to him.
“The wound was deep and he was bleeding and in pain, so he couldn’t say anything to me. The doctors did their best but they said the knife had affected his lungs and there was not much they could do when he was brought to the hospital,” he said.
The Police have stated that they would do an in-depth investigation into the murder.
