A married woman in Ghana has died after her husband bathed her with acid following a family quarrel.

The victim of acid attack before her death

According to a neighbour, Akosua, the attack which left the woman dead on May 11 at the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, occurred following an argument with her husband.

Narrating what happened, Akua said when she heard the victim yelling, she rushed into her room only to meet her naked, with her skin peeling off.

She then rushed to knock on Agyaku's door but he did not respond. She added that some of the corrosive substance dripped on her limb when she tried to hold her and burnt her skin as well.

She added that she called other neighbours in the house to help her get the victim to the hospital but by the time she returned, Abena ahd crawled out of her room and told her Agyaku had poured acid on her.

To avoid arrest, the suspect allegedly set his room on fire and sneaked out, another neighbour narrated.

The victim was rushed to a hospital in the area but was transferred to the Teaching Hospital, where she later died.
