A/R – Man Commits Suicide After Failed Attempt To Kill Wife


A 43 year old Galamsey operator on Saturday took his life at Adumasa in the Atwima Kwanwoma District in the Ashanti Region after firing a gun shot at his wife.

The man, Akwasi Painstil fled the scene fearing that his wife who was wailing after the gun shot, was dead.

Neighbours found his lifeless body in uncompleted building hours after his wife who had miraculously missed the bullet reported the issue to the police.

Narrating the incident to Ultimate News’ Thomas Asamoah, the wife of the deceased Auntie Yvonne recounted that she had packed out of her matrimonial home after Painstil had physically assaulted her severally and threatened to kill her.

Describing the violent nature of her husband, the widow who was thrown in a state of confusion recounted her ordeal from the beating she last received from her late husband for which reason she fled the house.

“I am not the lousy type of woman, sometimes he beats me inside and nobody will hear about it but I never thought it could get this far. The last time he beat me for well over an hour and threatened to kill me.”

She indicated that her husband trailed her to her new apartment on Friday Night where he shot at her and fled.

“I have a small kiosk at a nearby town called Afratia where I go to sell after work. I go there around 6:00pm and close at 9:00pm. I was returning home from my store when my husband called me from behind, and asked where I have relocated after packing out of the house.”

“Before I could answer, he fired a bullet from a gun he was holding. He then took to his heels thinking i was dead.” She recounted.

The coward Pinstil who was not brave enough to face the full rigorous of the law for his actions and thinking his wife was dead, therefore killed himself to let sleeping dogs lie.

According to the widow, she heard the sad news of her late husband untimely demise when she was returning from the Trede police station where she had reported her husband’s attempted murder on her.

Meanwhile the police has begun its investigations after conveying the body to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for Autopsy.

Atwima Kwannwoma District commander DSP Augustine Mensa told Thomas Asamoah, the police will make its conclusions after the hospital produces an autopsy report but noted that “he was found foaming at his mouth.”

He also indicated that the said weapon used to shoot the wife was not found with the man when police arrived at the scene.
