Solomon Nyantakyi, Ghanaian footballer arrested for murdering his mother and sister in Italy - 4 years ago
On Tuesday, a Ghanaian footballer Solomon Nyantakyi, was arrested in Italy for the alleged murder of his mother and sister. The former football star with Italian side Parma is the major suspect in the double murder of his mother and young sister, who were stabbed to death at their home. He was arrested in Milan as he attempted to flee on Wednesday morning although the incident took place in their home in Via San Leonardo, the outskirts of Parma, which is a multi-ethnic neighborhood where many Ghanaians live. The suspect’s elder brother Raymond Nyantakyi, 25, returned home from work around 9pm on Tuesday to discover the gruesome murder of Patience Nfum, 45, and little sister Magdalene Nyantakyi, 11 who are both Ghanaians living in Italy. When Raymond opened the door he found a gruesome scene with blood everywhere, on the floor, on walls and on the furniture in their sixth-floor apartment. Solomon was touted as one of the rising stars in Italian football as he flourished in the youth system of Parma winning several titles with them. He was promoted to the Parma senior team by Roberto Donadoni before the club went into administration as a result of which the young player’s career took a nose dive. The 21-year-old played for Serie D for Imolese Calcio last season but suddenly stopped and joined bad company, noted for committing serious crimes in Italy.
