Ghanaian boxer Ayittey Powers is making a passionate appeal to his wife to return his son to him.
According to the boxer, he returned from a trip in December, 2019 only to find his home empty without any sight of his wife and son and all efforts to reach her has proven futile.
Speaking to 3news.com, the clearly disturbed Powers, born Michael Okine, stated that he had gone on a working trip outside Accra with the hope and excitement of seeing his wife and son but only came to meet the unexpected surprise.
“I came back that day just within the Christmas period of 2019 and to my surprise there was nothing in my room and there was no sign of my wife and son too,” he lamented.
“I became very disturbed and started calling her phone but it was off and it’s been off until today.”
When asked if he had contacted his wife’s family members to find out if anybody had seen her, he responded by saying he had done that several times.
“I have been in touch with both parents who claim they haven’t seen her but I honestly don’t believe them because I know they know where she is. My son is my priority and he’s the one I want back so I’m appealing to her to bring him back to me.”
He recalled being told by his wife one time that he was no longer her husband, saying it was a direction from a man of God.
“She told me her pastor had told her I’m not the right husband for her and advised her to leave the marriage which remains a mystery to me.”
“And I feel hurt and sad anytime it crosses my mind and I say this because this same woman had gone to Nigeria with me to meet my spiritual father Prophet TB Joshua who promised to give her money to travel to Dubai and China so she can expand her business.”
He said he has made a report at the Dansoman Police Station about the disappearance of his wife and son.
