A 60-year old man, Kobbie Brown has been lynched to death by his wife believed to be in her 50s at Gomoa Nkwantanan in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region.
The incident happened Tuesday, December 21 in broad daylight.
A 14-old-step daughter of the deceased, explaining the unfortunate incident to the EIB Network’s Central Regional Correspondent Yaw Boagyan said, her mother left the house in the early hours of Tuesday, December 21 after she warned her (daughter) not to sweep the compound of the house in her absence.
The disheartened daughter continued that, a few minutes after the mother left the house, she heard screaming and wailing coming from the compound of their house.
She then opened the door to witness what was going on.
”I came out only to see some nearby neighbours shouting and crying. And to my surprise, I approached closer, only to see my father’s lifeless body forcibly pushed in the middle of building blocks parked in front of our house whiles my mother was nowhere to be found at that time”.
However, the suspect, later came to the scene including two family members accompanied by an ambulance.
The Assembly Member of Budumburam Electoral area, Lot Arthur, and the other two relatives of the deceased said that the suspect had come to inform them in the morning that, her husband has passed on, therefore, coming with the ambulance to convey the body to the morgue.

But, information gathered by Yaw Boagyan revealed that the root cause of the matter was that the ex-husband of the suspect would be coming down to Ghana soon from the United Kingdom (UK) and arrangements have been made between them to reunite hence the need to kill her current husband in other to get the UK based husband to marry her.
And to get easy access to settle with her UK ex, the suspect had to leave her life, therefore, allegedly lynching her husband with a stick to death.
