The Kwabenya Circuit Court in Accra has sentenced a media personality, Abdul Razak Toure who brutally assaulted his third wife in 2019.

The accused person was convicted on his plea after he changed from not guilty to guilty.

Speaking to JoyNews in February, 2019, the victim of domestic abuse dared to challenge the status quo and speak up about the domestic violence she suffered at the hands of her husband then.

She said her ex-husband with four wives, Toure Abdul Razak, assaulted her following a misunderstanding over issues related to their marriage.

The assault left the wife with multiple injuries on her head, eyes and nose.

Toure Abdul Razak on that fateful night punched his third wife in the face during a confrontation and also hit her head against a wall several times, leaving her with bloodshot eyes and a bleeding nose.

According to the victim, the assault was carried out in the presence of their then 4-year-old daughter and 1-year-old boy.
