According to reports, the young man was one of the two suspects alleged to have stabbed Abass Nurudeen and were currently on the run after committing the dastardly act.
The name of the alleged suspect is yet to be ascertained as investigations go on following the actor’s unfortunate demise.
Abass Nurudeen, popularly known as Blinkz, was a Kumawood actor and makeup artist. Reports had been rife on the afternoon of Wednesday, November 7, that Abass died after being stabbed in a brawl.
The police in Kumasi who were notified of the incident rushed to the scene and confirmed the death of the well-built actor who was popular for his roles as a ‘thug’ in many Kumawood movies.
Preliminary investigations led Manhyia Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kwaku Buah, to believe that the stabbing incident happened at about 10:30 am. ACP Buah narrated that the deceased also worked at Acheamfour Terminal, a bus terminal in Kumasi. He added that the stabbing incident happened after he (Abass Nurudeen) visited his boss’ house at Akorem, a suburb of Kumasi.
Abass, according to reports, met his boss’ wife and her brother exchanging words upon arrival. The deceased then tried to intervene. But the brother of his boss’ wife got angry over his intervention and engaged him in a brawl which later turned bloody.
The boss’ brother-in-law and another guy present came together to attack Blinkz with knives stabbing him in the process. Abass was reportedly stabbed in the ribs and there was another cut on his back which caused him to fall and collapse. He was immediately rushed to the Manhyia Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Speaking to the press over the matter, ACP Buah urged the public to assist in apprehending the suspects who are said to have bolted after committing the crime.
