Man who threatened suicide after wife’s sex snub appears before court

The 38-year-old man who has been arrested by the Assin Fosu Police in the Central region for threatening to commit suicide after his wife snubbed him is to be arraigned before court today, Thursday, March 8.

According to Joseph Acquah, a resident of Assin Kwaata, his wife (name withheld) has denied him sex for the last three months; a situation he finds difficult to endure.

His wife who was alarmed by his threat to commit suicide over the said sexual snub reported the matter to the police who effected the arrest of Acquah.

Assin Fosu District police commander, ASP Magnus Rendorf Sam told Kasapa News that Joseph Acquah is being processed for court because suicide is a criminal act which contravenes the laws of the country.

He emphasized that since it is against the laws of the country, the police will ensure that Acquah is punished accordingly to act as a deterrent to others who would contemplate such actions.
