Family of woman allegedly murdered by husband demands justice

The family of a woman who was allegedly beaten to death by her husband is demanding justice for her.

They are accusing the police of shielding the main suspect.

According to the family, her death was caused by internal bleeding.

Belinda Aduna, died on Monday 21st January 2019 after her husband, Mawuli Armah allegedly beat her up.

The Adentan Police have since arrested Mawuli.

An uncle of the deceased, James Kweku Badumeh, believes the police are shielding the suspect whose father is a Senior officer at the Police Headquarters.

James Kweku Badumeh who spoke to Citi News narrated the incident and complained bitterly about the alleged conduct of the police.

“The long and short of the matter is, we [the family] are not satisfied with the autopsy results. It is not acceptable that a man beat up his wife, break her teeth and cause her to bleed profusely. I  took the deceased to the hospital; she died on arrival. The autopsy results given us indicated that the cause of death could not be determined. But that is absurd.”

“Even when a person falls ill mysteriously, or goes to sleep and doesn’t wake up, the doctors are able to identify the cause of death. But they are telling us that they have no idea what lead to her death so we are appealing to the media to help us sustain this story so that justice can be served.”

Kweku Badumeh said, “the father of suspect is a high-ranking police officer; [and] we believe he has allegedly paid someone to get his son out of the grips of the law.”

At the residence of Belinda, it was apparent that the husband consistently beat her.

A neighbour who recounted some of the assault incidents she witnessed said, “the man beats up his wife quite often. He sometimes uses a rod to whip her. He sometimes even flogs her with wire. There was even a time he put her head inside a bucket of soapy water. They usually fought, and very often too”.

The Adentan Police Command told Citi News that the suspect, Mawuli Armah will be put before court on March 5, 2019.
