A 40-year-old cocoa farmer in the northern part of the Western Region, identified only as Awuku Avie, has butchered his wife to death.
This happened yesterday at Goalkeeper-krom, a cocoa farming community near Sefwi- Kaase in the Bia West District of the region.
The butchered woman has been identified as Madam Abena Ahenefie.
The Bia West District Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Daniel Wiafe, disclosed this at a news briefing at Sefwi Debiso in Bia, Western Region.
The commander explained that the couple have been living together in the same village for many years.
He indicated that about a week ago the deceased woman suspected the husband of having an affair with another lady.
ASP Wiafe said the woman confronted her husband, attracting the attention of neighbours, who did not intervene. The neighbours woke up yesterday morning to find the mutilated body of Madam Ahenefie in her bedroom.
The body has been conveyed to the Dormaa Presbyterian Hospital for autopsy.
Awuku Avie is on the run and the police have promised to smoke him out.
