A 32-year-old trader, Esi Arthur, a resident at Gomoa Akropong in the Central Region has been arrested by the Agona Swedru District Police Command for k!ll!ng her husband over adultery.
The deceased who has been identified as 44-year-old Francis Anthony was hit in the head with a ‘4×4’ piece of wood by the wife which ended his life on the spot.
Ebenezer Anthony, the father of the deceased narrated the incident in an interview with Adom News.
Ebenezer Nyansor, the deceased’s in-law also revealed Esi Arthur, on several occasions, threatened to kill her husband for having a child with another woman.
The issues, he explained, were resolved until the deceased received a call last night from his mistress.
Relatives of the deceased and friends have since besieged the Swedru District Police Command, demanding the release of the suspect for instant justice.
Some family members lamented that the suspect has dashed all their hopes with her action hence their decision to revenge.
“Our brother was all we had. I have gone to pick up forms to continue my education, now with him gone, how do I cater for myself and the kids he has left behind?” a brother of the deceased quizzed.
“We want the police to release her so we can take revenge, her action is unforgivable. Till now no single relative from her side has even shown up,” another said.
