An angry mob has killed a man for murdering his wife at Akwaboso near Diaso in the Central Region of Ghana.

The 54-year-old man, Kweku Efo was said to have murdered the wife, Abena Kissiwaa, at Akwaboso on May 3 at about 1:15 am after which he fled the scene.

According to ASP Irene Oppong, the Central Regional Police PRO, the man“inflicted four deep cutlass wounds on the face, left arm, left thumb and the back of the deceased’s head.”

A resident reported the matter to the police after discovering the body of the woman. The body of the deceased was recovered and deposited at the St. Martins’ Roman Catholic Hospital morgue.

ASP Irene Oppong said that at about 9:30 pm on the same day of the incident, they had information that the suspect, Efo had been caught by some residents of Ayiem in the Ashanti Region.

“Police proceeded to Ayiem and met an irate mob numbering about 800, some wielding offensive weapons,” ASP Oppong told 3News, adding that the man who was under lock in a room had forcibly been removed and lynched “and the body sent to Akwaboso by some mob to be burnt”.

She said a reinforcement team was dispatched to Akwaboso where the police retrieved the mutilated body. No arrest has been made.

Meanwhile, the body of Efo has been deposited at Dunkwa-on-Offin Govt hospital morgue for autopsy.
