COMFORT TAWIAH, a 30-year-old woman with two children, has been left blind and battling for her life after her jealous lover bathed her with acid after a phone argument at Awutu Bawjiase in the Awutu Senya West District of the Central Region.
The suspect, Ishmael Atsitso Agboko, popularly known as King Duga, according to information available to this paper, travelled all the way from Kasoa to Awutu Bawjiase to ostensibly visit Comfort but had plans to destroy the victim’s life.
The reports indicate that the victim and his lover were having issues over who should take care of their son because their relationship was no more stable.
Comfort said when King Duga came to her house, he started accusing her of cheating because she received numerous calls on her phone.
The victim said, after a heated argument with her lover, she decided to sleep but after five minutes the suspect poured a liquid believed to be acid on her face, breasts and other parts of her body.
The Bawjiase District Police Command is hunting for Ishmael Atsitso Agboko, who is on the run, to assist in investigations into the incident.
In an interview with journalists, the Awutu Bawjiase District Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Felicia Ayensu, revealed that the suspect first tried to stab the victim with a knife but that could not work so he later poured the acid on her.
Meanwhile, the mother of the victim, Helena Mensah, who could not control her tears, in an interview with the media, has appealed to Ghanaians to support her financially to pay for medical fees of the victim.
She appealed for support through her Momo contact 0246013503 to take care of her daughter.
