Police in the Ashanti Region has arrested a 27-year-old woman and her boyfriend for conspiring to kill her husband.
The suspects, Mavis Brepor, alias Maadwoa, and Patrick Asare, alias Coach, 50, are said to have engaged the services of a contract killer to have her husband, David Gator, 52, killed.
According to our source, the suspects, in their attempt to contact the contract killer, mistakenly called the Manhyia Divisional Police Commander, ACP Kwaku Buah.
ACP Buah then feigned interest in the contract when Patrick Asare committed to pay GH₵100,000 to have Mr Gator killed.
ACP Buah said together with undercover investigators and detectives, lured the suspect to come to Kumasi after they posed as contract killers from Sefwi.
The suspect, he said, admitted in his caution statement after his arrest that he conspired with the target’s wife to kill him so they could freely go on with their relationship.
The suspect led the Police to Pamen where Mavis was also arrested.
The suspects are currently in Police custody and are being processed for court.
