As to what motivated his violent conduct against his wife, it’s alleged that he beat the late Madam Beatrice Logosu, 38, on the suspicion of infidelity. After his wife, Mr Golo secretly sent her body to the morgue.
This development brings the number of reported cases of domestic abuse in the Volta Region which have led to the death of their partners to three cases. The previous two happened in Ho.
Confirming the news, ASP Joseph Nakoja, the District Commander for Denu Police Command disclosed that the incident took place on the 28th of March, 2021.
“On 28th March 2021 at 0800 hours, we received information that the suspect Gali Golo who lives at Akame had beaten the wife, Beatrice Logosu to death the previous night, 27th March, and secretly sent the body for preservation at Hosanna Clinic mortuary in Agbozume,” ASP Joseph Nakoja said in an interview with Ghana News Agency.
“We moved in and recovered the body which had been embalmed. There were bruises on the body with blood oozing from a broken jaw. Also, the victim’s neck appeared to be broken suggesting a possible case of strangulation. For now, the body is still at the same morgue for further action.
“We visited the home of the couple and gathered from neighbours that the suspect initiated the assault on the victim around midday of 27th March for alleged infidelity and threatened to kill everyone that condemned his behaviour. The neighbours said the couple carried the fight deep into the night only for them to learn the next morning that the victim had died.”
