A heartless wife has brutally murdered her husband by repeatedly hitting him with a firewood leading to his death.
A woman has brutally murdered her own husband by repeatedly hitting him with firewood.
The incident happened at the Sagnarigu District in the Northern Region of Ghana. The man died on the way to the hospital after he had been hit twice on the head with firewood by his second wife.
According to The Graphic, the man, whose name was only given by residents of the area as Mohammed, but popularly known as “Big Man”, is said to have fallen unconscious and bled from the nose.
He has since been buried according to the Islamic tradition and custom.
An eyewitness revealed that the incident which took place on Monday, August 15, 2016, was caused as a result of quarrel between the deceased and his second wife, Azara, at their residence.
They alleged that since Mohammed married Azara and brought her to live with him and the first wife, there had not been peace in the house, as his two wives quarrelled every day.
The eyewitnesses alleged that the first wife, who could not live with the situation, packed out, leaving her children with Mohammed and Azara.
After the first wife left, Azara picked a quarrel with her husband and refused to cook for the family and so Mohammed called his first wife to return home and take care of the family.
On the day that the first wife returned to the house, a quarrel ensued between Mohammed and Azara, which led to his death.
Tamale Police said they had not received any report on the matter.
When this reporter contacted the family of the deceased for their comments and why they had not lodged a complaint with the police for the law to take its course, they said as Muslims their belief was that their relative died a natural cause and that Azara was just a tool God used to take Mohammed’s life.
