Woman Kills Husband Over Banku

A 33-year-old woman has been nabbed by the police for allegedly killing her husband during a misunderstanding over banku and smoked fish.

Beauty Sabey allegedly stabbed Francis Anagli, 26, with a kitchen knife during a scuffle on June 2, 2015 at Tsokome near Bortianor, Weija, in the Greater Accra Region.

The man purportedly passed on when he was being rushed to the Ga South Municipal Hospital for treatment.

Confirming the arrest to DAILY GUIDE, ASP Effia Tengey, Accra Regional Police Public Relations Officer, said the couple had been married for the past five years with two children together with a step child of the wife.

The deceased’s first child is five years while the second is only six months old.

Around 2pm on Tuesday, June 2, 2015, the couple had a misunderstanding and this resulted in a fight.

In the process, Beauty reportedly used a kitchen knife to stab the husband twice in the chest, resulting in his untimely death, according to the police officer.

The body has since been deposited at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for autopsy.

An eyewitness said Anagli lost his job months ago and so he could not meet his financial obligations to the family.

This compelled the wife to report the matter to the husband’s extended family members for redress but when Anagli got hint of it, he became offended and confronted the wife on it. The eyewitness said Francis Anagli left the house for town that morning.

Around 2pm when he returned home, he realised that the wife had prepared banku for the family.

When he settled down to eat his share of it, he realised that the wife had only served him with the banku and raw ground pepper without fish, while she ate her portion with smoked fish.

The eyewitness said Anagli confronted the wife to explain to him why she had served him with raw pepper without fish and this resulted in a fracas.

In the process, he allegedly slapped the woman but in return, Beauty, who was holding a knife, used it to stab the husband.

The matter was later lodged with the Weija police and Beauty was apprehended.

As at press time yesterday, she was in police custody assisting in investigations.
