A Pregnant Woman  Was Nearly Hammered To Death By Her Ex-husband

A four months pregnant woman, Madam  Afi Charlotte, a hairdresser, was nearly killed by her hammer-wielding ex-husband.

A good Samaritan from Nkpon Neighbourhood at Nungua in the Krowor Municipality of the greater Accra Region (where the bloody  incident took place) intervened to save the situation,  avoiding the worse to happen.

The incident happened yesterday, (12th April,  2021), around 11:00 am. From a confidential source,  an eyewitness who want to remain anonymous,  named the rampaging ex-husband   as David Atigah.
Our source continued that: “the man,  who’s having a child with the victim,  forced  his way into the ex-wife’s room,  by breaking the door”.
Madam Afi Charlotte, is believed to be living alone with her child from her marriage with David   for the past five years after parting ways with him.


According to Madam Charlotte, she is four months  pregnant for another  man  who resides elsewhere,  far from her vicinity.
She continued that: ‘I was  far asleep when David broke my  door and flung himself on me, in an attempt to beat me”.

She continued: “he then held my neck strangling me,  threatening to kill me before he can be free. As I struggled with him,  I kept on shouting for help,  then neighbours came to my rescue. Else it would have been a different story by now”.

According to the neighbours,  the man had come with an unmarked Taxi cab (without a number plate), and with him were other men.
When the pregnant woman in a company of her elder sisters were on their way to Nungua Divisional police station to  lodge a complain about the assault,  the man reappeared and struck Madam Charlotte in the head with a hammer, resulting in her bleeding profusely.

In retaliation,  the sisters of the victim wanted to attack the ex-husband, David, by smashing the windscreen of the Taxi cab that brought him.  This attracted more onlookers from the vicinity who calmed the situation down.

The pregnant woman quickly  lodged  her complain at the Nungua Divisional  police station and was issued a medical report to go  to Nungua Adegonno poly Clinic for healthcare. But the enormity of her injury coupled with her pregnancy  meant she  was referred to Main Lekma hospital for special care.

At the time of writing this report, the said police  station had  confirmed the lodging of the  case and yet to begin investigation to ascertain what really had led to this bloody attack on the pregnant woman.


The reporter of this story, stays in the same community with Madam  Afia Charlotte and reports  that the CID on the case has  not yet  come to the crime scene, as at 4:00pm, to effect the arrest of the suspect,  and that David  is walking about freely.

According to Afia Charlotte, any time she  reports her ex-husband for  beating or threatening her life, the police treat her case with no seriousness. For this is not the  first time she’s  gone to the police  concerning her former husband, David.

Afia Charlotte is appealing to the domestic violence unit of Ghana police service, and the Gender ministry, to intervene, because she is not safe with her life and that of her pregnancy.


For in her statement,  Madam Charlotte alleges that  the ex-husband is threatening to kill her.
