Residents of Abrobiano in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem (KEEA) District of the Central region woke up on January 1, 2020, to the shocking news that a man and his wife have allegedly committed suicide.

The couple were found dead shortly after returning from the New Year Eve’s Watch Night church service on Wednesday.

Narrating what happened, a resident said the couple were found dead at about 2 am by one of their children.

He said their six-year-old child woke up in the middle of the night to see that her mother, Afua Atta, had been stabbed to death with a knife on her matrimonial bed.

The little girl also saw her father hanging from the ceiling of the bedroom.

“Upon reaching the room, we were shocked when we saw that the woman had been stabbed several times with a knife and there was blood all over the room.

“The man also used his jeans trousers to hang himself on the ceiling. We don’t know what pushed them to take their lives,” a resident told Kasapa News.

The bodies have been deposited at the Elmina Mortuary while police begin investigations into the matter.
