Following an argument with his wife, a Ghanaian man only known as Abeiku reportedly killed her and is now on the run.
After his initial effort to poison her failed, the man reportedly killed his wife in Ghana’s Eastern Region.
According to reports, Abeiku tried to poison his wife’s food, but failed when she discovered his plan and refused to eat it.
As the days passed, their disagreement got worse, and the man started threatening to kill her.
After her unsuccessful marriage, which resulted in the birth of two children, the woman moved in with her mother in the same region’s Begoro neighbourhood, according to Starr FM.
She was however killed after reconciling with her husband and moving back to her matrimonial home.
Commenting on the death of the lady, her uncle, Wofa Kwasi said he intervened when the couple’s disagreement grew worse in the days leading to Christmas.
“The suspect and the now-deceased wife came to me with some sort of misunderstanding, and I listened to both of them.” The wife claimed that her husband had been threatening to kill him and then kill himself.”
“I was upset and decided to let them be apart for a year in order to settle the issue and bring about harmony, but the woman left for her mother’s house for Christmas. I waited for them to come back so that I could make a decision, only to learn that the woman came back yesterday and was killed this morning.”
A manhunt has now been launched by the police for the suspect who is a commercial driver that travels between Koforidua and Kasoa.
