A 30 -year -old welder, Delali Kwasi Atakpa, is on the run after inflicting multiple cutlass wounds on his girlfriend, Mary Ama Nyorkey, 29, at Adeiso Amaakrom in the Upper West Akyem District of the Eastern region.
Atakpa’s savagery was triggered by a misunderstanding between the two lovebirds.
According to the victim, Mary Ama Nyorkey, her boyfriend attacked her because she had decided to leave his (boyfriend’s) house to leave with her mother following persistent misunderstandings over marriage rites.
Ama further explained that her decision was to compel Atapka to perform the necessary marriage rites before she returns to his house.
However, her boyfriend misinterpreted her action as an attempt to ditch him hence the attack.
The victim is currently receiving treatment at the hospital.
