Residents of Spintex in Accra have been left in a state of sadness and fear amid wailing following the arrest of a young man for allegedly beheading a lady believed to be his girlfriend.
A video shared by a Twitter influencer, @SIKAOFFICIAL1 shows police officers carrying the body of the yet-to-be-identified deceased which was wrapped as if it was to be conveyed to the mortuary.
“Police have arrested a young man for beheading a middle-aged woman in Spintex, Accra,” the video was captioned.
It is alleged that the equally yet-to-be-identified suspect is a Nigerian who perpetrated the crime at the Batsona stretch of the Spintex road.
It remains unclear what was his motive for committing the heartless crime, and the Ghana Police Service has not issued any statement on the incident yet.
Some residents of the community subsequently found him in a ‘helpless’ state in the bush and rushed him to the Juaboso Government Hospital for treatment.
The residents and police officers had thought that after realizing that his wife was dead as a result of the violent beatings, Ahi also took in a poisonous chemical suspected to be a weedicide to kill himself.
However, the doctors at the Juaboso established that he had not taken any poison, so they called the police to arrest him.
The police visited the crime scene and the body of Patience Armah was taken to the Juaboso Government Hospital for further investigation.
The couple has two children, a 4-year-old boy and a 1-year-old girl, myjoyonline.com reports.
The couple had been reportedly fighting frequently in recent times before the unfortunate development.
