A 48-year-old man, Korley Commodore, has been arrested by the Dansoman Police Patrol team for allegedly stabbing wife in the presence of his children at Dansoman Shiabu in Accra, Ghana.

Commodore and his wife had been married for 9 years with two children aged five and eight.

According to GhanaWeb, the children were said to have been in the bedroom at the time of the incident, with one of them screaming  “daddy you are killing mummy”.

The Dansoman Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Isaac Kwadwo Asante, confirmed the incident.

Asante said the Police on Sunday had received information that a man had killed his wife.
Getting to the house, the suspect was said to have locked himself up in his room and would not open the door despite the police requesting him to do so.

The police had to force the door open to arrest him.
The body of the deceased was seen in the room with bloodstains all over it and was later deposited at the  Ghana Police Hospital Morgue.

Reacting to the incident a family member had expressed his worries about the children of the couple who had witnessed their father killing their mother.

He said, “I cannot imagine the emotional effect of what has happened on the children. Just imagine a child as young as eight years witnessing her biological father killing her mother. It is a pity, isn’t it?” said the relation.
