According to Joy Online, a neighbour of the deceased, Akua, said the attack followed an argument with her husband. The victim Abena Sarfoa was pronounced dead at dawn on Wednesday, May 11 at the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
Narrating what happened, Akua said she rushed to the room of the deceased after she heard her yelling.
According to Akosua, Abena was n*ked when she opened the door and her skin was peeling off. She then rushed to knock on her [Abena’s] husband’s door but he did not respond. Some of the corrosive substance dripped on her limb when she tried to hold her. She said she felt her skin burning.
She added that she called other neighbours in the house to help her get the victim to the hospital. She said when she returned, the victim crawled out of her room and told her Agyaku had poured acid on her.
The suspect suddenly set his room on fire and sneaked out, another neighbour told Luv News’ Kwasi Debrah.
The victim was rushed to a hospital in the area but was transferred to the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, where she later died.
The neighbours are yet to file an official complaint at the Nkawie Police Station.
