Viewers Discretion Advised: Man Commits Suicide After Allegedly Butchering His Wife

The rate of marital killings and suicides are becoming too rampant in this country. It appears these unfortunate incidents are becoming normal as we wake up every morning to hear this news. Looking at the image below, an elderly man has committed suicide on a tree. Reports indicate that the deceased, late Mr Thomas Kontoh butchered his wife, Lydia Amponsah and after that went to hang himself on this tree.

The reports did not include what triggered the man to butcher his wife but most Ghanaians believe it might be as a result of cheating. Most of the cases of relationship and marriage killings we have heard from the news this year are as a result of one partner believed to be cheating on the other. Most Ghanaians believe that because the man knows that he will definitely go to prison for this crime that is why he hangs himself.

This incident happened in a community called Gbetsile soldier line, Tema Metropolitan, Greater Accra Region. Reports indicate that the Ghana Police Service has got to this community to start investigations into this case.
