The ex–girlfriend Ami Noviegbor Kugblenu, 26, and the children, identified as Miracle Woeko, three; Nelson Woeko, two; Fredrick Galatsi, three; and Angela Yetume, five, all die immediately after eating ‘gari-fortor’, a local dish, which the suspect, had laced with rodenticide, a poisonous substance.

The two had allegedly cohabited for years without children and the suspect was not ready to pay her bride price.

The woman was also said to have complained about attack of sexual assault from the man, and was, therefore, forced to abandon the suspect’s home.

In an interview with the Daily Graphic, the Jomoro District Police Commander, Superintendent of Police, Mr John F. Dzineku, said the suspect sneaked into the room of the woman at about 4 a.m. on Monday and put poison in a quantity of gari, which she used in preparing the meal the following morning for breakfast.

Mr Dzineku said while Ami, who was a fishmonger, was waiting for her friend so that they could move to the shore for the day’s business, the deceased children of Ami’s friend started crying and complaining of hunger.

To save time, Ami went for the remaining food and served the children with it.

The district commander said just after that, Ami went down with severe stomach pains, and was shortly followed by the four children, who also went down in pain.

They were rushed to the Half Assini Government Hospital but they died on arrival.

He said after the incident, medical experts from the hospital were contacted, who confirmed the poisoning of the food they had eaten.

That led the police to the premises of Mawutor, and a search in his room revealed the leftovers of the rodenticide used in the deadly act.

Also found in the room was Ami’s bathroom sandals.

It is unclear whether the death of the four kids was accidental or part of Mr Hovor's scheme.

Police say he will be processed for court on Thursday February 19, 2015.
