V/R: Husband allegedly kills wife in Adaklu Tevikpo

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at Adaklu District Police Command in the Volta Region is investigating the death of a 40-year-old mother in a farming community, Adaklu Tevikpo.

Philip Tetteh, a family member of the deceased, claims that on Tuesday, April 16, 2024, the deceased, known as Maama, went to the farm with her teenage son, however, her lifeless body was later found on the same farm.

The teenager is currently assisting the CID in the investigation.

It is reported that the deceased had quarrels with her husband, Kwame Ayew few days before the unfortunate incident.

The reports also suggest that the husband, being the prime suspect earlier threatened to kill his wife during an argument in their home.

The husband has reportedly been on the run for the past 24 hours since the incident occurred.

The family of the deceased is, therefore, appealing to the public to assist in the apprehension of Kwame Ayew, the prime suspect.

The deceased left behind nine children.

Spousal murder cases are common in Ghana.

Recently, a 60-year-old man allegedly killed his wife over infidelity at Insusiding, a community near Bogoso in the Western Region.

Sources indicate that the suspect, Agya Kojo Nimo, a palm wine tapper, had been engaging in petty quarrels with his wife for some time.

The misunderstandings between the two, who had been married for 20 years, stemmed from accusations of cheating.

The sources added that Agya Nimo’s constant accusations pushed Aunty Ama, 50, to return the drinks to her husband’s family for their customary marriage.

A move that signified the end of their marriage.

However, she returned to the matrimonial home to care for their children.

On Thursday, April 11, 2024, the palm wine tapper trailed the wife when she went to the farm to harvest cassava.

“So some few hours after the wife left, Agya Nimo also went to the same farm, and when he arrived and saw the wife working, he allegedly picked up a club and hit the wife’s head with it; the woman fell unconscious.

“The man continued to use the stick to hit the head and other parts of the woman’s body until she reportedly died,” the source narrated.

After committing the crime, he returned home and took a poisonous substance in an attempt to commit suicide.
