Wa Magistrate Court has remanded into prison custody, a 35-year-old private security man, Vitus Kundeyiri for an alleged attempted murder of his wife of 13 years, Amanda Abawuro Basinbo, 30.

The man was apprehended following an allegation of pickaxe attack on his lovely wife, inflicting several painful cuts on the face of his wife injuring her skull in the process, all in the presence of their 10-year-old son at their residence at Konta, a community in Wa, in the Upper West region of Ghana.

Speaking in an interview, the Upper West Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Service, Inspector Gideon Boateng, revealed that the suspect and the victims had a fight on April 29, and settled it but had a second misunderstanding on the 30th, which led to the pickaxe attack by the husband.

The brutally injured victim was rushed to the emergency unit of the Upper West Regional Hospital and later referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi for further treatment after the incident but it was not immediately reported to police until May 1, when the complainant, Vera Basinbo, sister of the victim, visited the Police station to make an official complaint.

According to Inspector Boateng, the police instantly launched a manhunt for the suspect who at the time could not be located.
