A drunken man has hacked his wife to death in Ghana because she threaten to divorce him.
The Nsawam Police reports that the ugly incident at Oboadaka in the Aburi District of the Eastern Region on Tuesday, March 1, 2016.
The deceased brother, Kofi Samuel, told newsmen that Okyerewah had prepared the evening meal on Monday, February 29, and was waiting for the husband to return from work before the two of them would eat the food, but the man was drunk when he returned from town, and refused to eat the food when he was served.
“The man then took the food from the bowl and threw it away, which infuriated the wife, causing her to insult the husband. She parked her things and went to stay with her family at Aburi,” Samuel narrated.
Samuel further narrated that his late sister, a fish monger seller, on Tuesday morning, was going to collect her debt at Adawso, when Adjei allegedly trailed her and hacked her with a sharp machete near a bush.
“We later got the information after my younger sister, who was on her way to meet Okyerewah at Adawso, had spotted the husband hacking her. She raised an alarm for help but the husband ran away before the mob got to the crime scene,” Samuel concluded.
The Nsawam Police Commander, ASP Michael Dandy Zah, who led his men to convey the body to the Police Hospital in Accra for autopsy, said his men had instituted investigations into the matter to get Adjei arrested.
