Embittered man pours acid on lover after breakup

Police in Awutu Breku in Awutu Senya district of the Central Region is hunting for a man believed to be in his late 30s.

Kofi Gabriel is currently at large after allegedly pouring acid on his girlfriend, Abena Yeboah, on Thursday.

Narrating her ordeal to Adom News’ Kofi Adjei, the 38-year-old petty trader said her supposed husband attacked her with the acid on her way to the market.

She said the suspect poured the acid on her upon realising that she has found out about his three-year-old marriage.

“I am a petty trader so on Thursday, I was on my way to the market when he ambushed me and dragged me to an uncompleted building and later poured acid on me. We have been together for three years so I called him my husband not knowing that he has been married and never told me," she revealed.

“When the T=truth came out and I found out, I decided to leave him but Kofi Gabriel failed to accept my decision. He threatened to deal with me if I left him and I thought he was just kidding only for him to pour acid on me”, she added.

The man, after pouring the acid on his girlfriend, bolted but the police have intensified their search for him.

Meanwhile, Abena is currently at the Hospital receiving treatment.
