A 54-year-old man is on the run from the Police after he allegedly killed his wife at Hordzo within the Ho Municipality of the Volta Region.
Emmanuel Dorfe, alias Kalizo, who is a father of 7, allegedly lay in ambush for his wife while she was on her way to church around 6:30 pm on Thursday, May 16, 2019.
The mother of the deceased, Helena Azameti, told Citi News that the couple had issues with the upkeep of their last born for the past 10 years.
She said that her daughter had suffered consistent abuse from her husband which left her bruised.
According to her, her daughter had reported the situation to the Volta Regional Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit of the Ghana Police service and both of them were supposed to report themselves to the police on Friday, May 17, 2019.
“…It’s their fourth child, he is the reason why they having issues. He wasn’t taking care of the children and the woman reported to DOVVSU but it didn’t go anywhere…he continued to bully her until the woman decided to divorce him. He has always physically assaulted her. She complained about body pains after another assault which took her to DOVVSU once more. They were supposed to appear at the police station but Emmanuel Dorfe was worried that he will be arrested. He went to the station yesterday alone and returned to commit that atrocity,” the mother of the deceased narrated.
