Man flogs girlfriend over booze

A farmer, name not yet known who lived at Akyem-Tafo Zabu Zongo in the East Akim Municipality of the Eastern Region has allegedly flogged his girlfriend identified as Maame Fante for stealing his money to buy alcoholic beverage.

The lady who hailed from Begoro but staying with her boyfriend suffered severe bruises on her body when the man beat her mercilessly with a dog chain Saturday evening.

DAILY GUIDE sources confirmed that, the lady who is currently nursing her sores used to steal her boyfriend’s money to buy booze and got drunk every day. The man complained about it several times but the lady paid no heed to him.

According to the sources, the boyfriend who got tired of his girlfriend’s behaviour decided to vent his spleen on her when she returned to the house late Saturday night heavily drunk after joining some NPP supporters to celebrate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo’s victory as the President elect.

The man capitalized on the absence of others in the house and allegedly flogged Maame Fante with the dog chain severely. The following day the other tenants spotted the bruises on the lady’s body and she told them what happened after they questioned her about it. The man was even said to have destroyed the girl’s mobile phone after beating her up.

The lady on Monday morning rushed to report the matter to her parents at Begoro who decided to cause the man’s arrest but he hurriedly went and pleaded for forgiveness and the matter was dropped.
