A footballer believed to be in his late 20s has allegedly murdered his girlfriend in the Volta regional capital of Ho.
The woman, Harriet Kafui Ahiati, 25, was murdered under strange circumstance at 12 midnight on Monday, March 22.
Report say, the boyfriend, popularly known as Jay is receiving treatment at the Ho Teaching Hospital after he attempted suicide.
He is believed to have attempted suicide by hanging himself on a ceiling fan in the room but failed.
The mother of the deceased told Starr News, the couple has been dating for over six years noting they started when the deceased was still at JHS 3.
She noted that the two were finally allowed to continue with the relationship after several failed attempts by both families to separate the young couple at the initial stages.
She said, “The two have been there for more than six years. Initially, we didn’t agree to the relationship so we attempted separating them but the two wouldn’t yield and so we allowed them to move on. They have lived nicely, the young man would come here, eat and sleep here.”
“Up until last night, I didn’t know the two had any serious issues. I only got back from my trip to meet a crowd here in my home and my daughter dead in a pool of blood,” she added.
Body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Ho teaching hospital morgue by the police while the suspect battles for his life at the same facility.
