The KNUST police in Kumasi have launched full- scale investigations into a case in which a 44-year old unemployed woman set her family’s five-bedroom apartment on fire at Anwomaso High Tension.
It follows the arrest of Vida Amoah who perpetrated the act after her husband intervened to restrain her from attacking a female tenant with machete.
Her traumatized husband, Bismarck Amoah, cannot believe the family is now homeless.
The woman however has issues with her husband for jumping to the defence of tenant she had targeted to harm.
Mrs. Amoah is a leader of the Women Fellowship in one of the orthodox churches in Kumasi.
She is said to have been acting strangely for some time now, finding fault with every of her husband’s action to the support a female tenant; compelling the husband to complain to the church leadership.
Armed with a cutlass, she laid ambush to carry through a threat to kill the tenant last Saturday evening, for unknown reasons.
The timely intervention of her husband prevented what could have been a blood bath, but that is what has infuriated her.
Personnel of the fire service responded swiftly to distress calls to save the apartment but it was too late.
Mrs. Amoah confessed to police; with the help of matches, she set fire in the wardrobe packed with several blankets before it swept through the main hall and other adjoining bedrooms.
Mr. Amoah has lost for words over his wife’s conduct.
Police investigation cannot immediately link the woman’s to suspicion of her husband having an amorous relationship with the woman she had attempted to attack.
“That was the initial suspicion but she did indicate vehemently that she trusts the husband s much that she doesn’t suspect the husband to do that. So what we were initially suspecting to have triggered her to make what she did is not the case”. KNUST District Commander; DSP Emmanuel Adu-Boahen revealed.
This leaves police with a lot of work to do as confirmed by DSP Emmanuel Adu-Boahen in an interview with Nhyira Fm in Kumasi.
“It is too early to conclude but what I will say now is that we are still conducting the investigation to find out indeed whether she is well; whether she is of sound mind; infact we have a lot to do”. DSP Adu-Boahen explained.
