Man remanded for threatening to kill wife

An Accra Circuit Court on Tuesday remanded one Ebenezer Acheampong for threatening to kill his wife, Madam Ivy Nyarko.

Ebenezer pleaded not guilty to the charges and was remanded by the court to reappear on August 8. The court also ordered the complainant to find an alternative accommodation.

Prosecuting, Police Detective Inspector, Kofi Atimbire told the court that the complainant and the accused person are married couples, blessed with four children.

He said for some time now the two have been having series of disagreements, and Ebenezer assaulted the complainant on several occasions, but she kept her ordeal to herself.

He told the court that on July 26, the accused person heard a news item on radio announcing that a policeman had murdered his mother-in-law and two children and committed suicide in Tema, and drew his wife attention to the news item.

The prosecution said Ebenezer repeated the news item to his wife and threatened her that, her behaviour in the house would soon lead to such an act.

Police Detective Inspector, Atimbire said this put the complainant in fear and so she reported the threats to the Kwabenya Police Station.

He said when Ebenezer was arrested, he again threatened the complainant at the Police Station, saying, “When I come home to meet you, you should count yourself dead.
