Man kills wife in Presence of daughter

A man believed to be 48 years has reportedly shot and killed his wife at Aswuafuo-Asamang in the Atwima Nwabiagya North District of the Ashanti Region after she allegedly threatened to divorce the man.

Bashiru Kophy Nyaniba, the Suspect, is said to have shot and killed Vida, a 39-year-old woman on Monday, August 2, 2021, around 1 am.

Reports indicate that he shot his wife twice at close range in the full glare of his daughter near the single-room apartment in which they stay.

Prior to the gruesome suspected murder, the couple had had a misunderstanding between them at dawn. Their 13- year old daughter reportedly intervened to restore calm but the accused refused.

Family members who gave an account to the media said, though the couple had some underlying relationship issues, the families of the two tried to resolve the matter.

Kophy had three children with deceased Vida and another with a different woman.

The Body of the deceased has been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue awaiting autopsy.

Bashiru is in the grips of the police.
