A husband, who is a father-of-two, is on the run after stabbing his wife multiple times in the head for not allowing him to use her money to pay for the services of a prostitute with whom he had had fun the previous night.
Narrating her ordeal to Class91.3FM’s Felicity Naana Nelson, the victim, Akua, said the incident happened on Monday, 27 May 2019 at Kanda, Accra.
According to Akua, her husband, whose name she only gave as Kofi, spent the night outside.
He returned home the following morning in the company of a prostitute who was demanding payment for her nightly service.
Akua, a hairdresser, said her husband stole her money to pay the prostitute, an action which sparked a heated argument between them.
Akua said in the evening of the same day, she felt a sharp pain in her skull while asleep, only to wake up to see her husband stabbing her multiple times with a knife.
The victim said she pleaded with him to stop and screamed for help.
Fearing the consequence of his action, the husband fled the scene.
Akua said she was rescued by her neighbours who took her to the hospital and reported the incident to the police.
Kofi has since not returned home.
Akua said she wants her husband arrested and jailed for attempting to kill her.
