Girl who bathed boyfriend with acid remanded


The 26 year old lady, who poured acid on her boyfriend, has been remanded in police custody.

Esther Enyonam Pekyi was charged with attempted murder before the Adjabeng Court 2, presided over by James Kojo Bota.

According to the prosecutor, Chief Inspector Gregory Yeboah, the suspect, who was residing at Tema, allegedly committed the act after her relationship with the victim, Eric Ohemeng fell apart.

The case has been adjourned to February 23 pending investigations.

The Police last week arrested Esther Enyonam Pekyi, who had been escaping for months. This was after Citi News provided the Police with intelligence leading to her arrest.

Eric Ohemeng, the third year student of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), will require three more surgeries at the cost of 55,000 Euros so he can “be normal again”.

Eric, who was speaking on the Citi Breakfast Show last week Monday, said he has already had five surgeries but still requires three more because he cannot move his right hand, as his neck also remains stiff.

Eric Ohemeng, a third-year student of GIMPA was bathed with acid by his girlfriend because he jilted her.

Eric’s right eye is totally blind, and according to him, his genitals have also been affected.

He also stated that he will need a hair transplant and some more skin grafting procedures as a result of the injuries.

Eric told the Citi Breakfast Show Host, Bernard Avle, that he needs the surgery so he could feel normal again. According him, he has had to stay indoors for two months now since he left the Hospital.

“I don’t go out; for the past two months that I left the hospital, I have not gone out.” A group of seven students from GIMPA have started a “Save Eric Ohemeng” campaign to raise money for his surgery which is to be done in Germany due to the absence of the necessary equipment to do it locally.

According to the group, Unibank Ghana Limited has already donated €10,000 Euros and GHc30,000 towards Eric’s surgeries. GIMPA also gave out GHc10,000 cedis to cater for Eric’s earlier surgeries.

Individuals wiling to contribute towards Eric’s surgeries can donate money via mobile money number 0244388233 or deposit into the following Unibank accounts:

0320425659914 (Euro account)

0510125659916 (Cedi Account)
