Palm Wine Tapper allegedly kills his wife and attempts suicide


A palm wine tapper, Kojo Nimo, has allegedly murdered his wife at Insu-Sidiing, a community near Bogoso in the Prestea Huni Valley of the Western Region.

Reporting from the area, Frimpong-Manso said the palm wine tapper and the wife had been married for twenty years and had three children.

The reporter disclosed the couple’s history of conflict, and the wife sent the drinks to the husband’s family, requesting the annulment of the marriage.


Frimpong-Manso reported on Rainbow Radio 87.5FM that after sending drinks to her husband’s family, she returned to her matrimonial home, which some neighbors found strange.

The wife left for the farm on Thursday, April 11, 2024, to harvest cassava and some other crops, so she would go and sell them in the market. 

Agya Nimo left for the farm a few hours later, and when he arrived, he allegedly picked up a stick and struck the wife.

He subsequently picked up a cutlass and allegedly hit the wife with it on several parts of her until she reporedly died.

He then left and went home, telling his neighbours that he had murdered the wife, taken poison, and would soon die.

Some of his neighbours rushed him to the Bogoso Hospital, where he is currently receiving treatment.

Others also rushed to the farm, where they saw the body of the woman in a pool of blood.

The police have since launched an investigation into the matter.
