Police in Kenema are investigating a nine-year-old, Adama Edison of 4 Monjama Street in the Kissy town section, after stabbing a twenty-four year-old woman Hawa Kallon in her stomach.
Adama told Awoko at the Kenema police division that she stayed with the victim at the same address and that Hawa had been manhandling her which led her to vow that she would kill her someday.
She explained that on January 2, the victim started beating her up mercilessly and that in the process of defending herself she stabbed Hawa in the stomach with a kitchen knife. But Hawa Kallon told Awoko from her bed at the Government Hospital that Adama used one of her ‘lappas’ to the market to sell cold water. “When she returned home and I questioned her, she responded rudely so I started beating her up. She then took a knife and stabbed me in my stomach. Both of us were then taken to the police station and the police then brought me here [to the hospital] where a doctor is taking care of me,” she narrated.
