A 29-year-old woman, Mary Nyorkey, has been beaten severely for the simple crime of asking her boyfriend to marry her.
Mary’s boyfriend, Delali Kwasi Atakpa, before the incident, asked her to move in with him, which she refused because she believed they hadn’t done the necessary rites of marriage.
This did not go down well with Delali, who flipped and severely wounded the woman before running into hiding to evade the police.
They are both residents of Adeiso Amankrom in the Upper West Akim District of the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Mary has been discharged from the hospital, according to sources.
She has reported the case to the police who have mounted a search to arrest and prosecute the suspect.
