Briefing the Daily Graphic Newspaper, the Odorkor District Police Commander, Chief Superintendent of Police Mr Abraham Acquaye, said the two claimed they had been lovers for the past three months.

Mr Acquaye said at about 5p.m. on April 5, this year, Gamor attended a naming ceremony at Omanjor near Accra with his new girlfriend and saw Georgina dancing at the ceremony with a man.
Gamor tried to prevent Georgina from dancing with the other man but she would not budge.
He said later, Gamor called the woman aside and inquired about the pregnancy and when she insisted she was still keeping it, he (Gamor) pounced on her and beat her until they were separated by those around.

The incident brought the naming ceremony to an abrupt end.
Mr Acquaye said later, Gamor told the police he found the gun while he was weeding near his house at Ofankor and decided to keep it.
