JOHN NINSON, the 42-year-old jealous husband who allegedly strangled his wife to death over sex at Promised Land near Adjei-Kojo, Tema, has finally surrendered himself to the Ashaiman District Police.

He was said to have gone into hiding in a bush at Santuo near Adjei-Kojo after committing the horrific act, which put residents of the area in a state of anxiety.

According to him, three days after the incident, while he was in the bush sleeping, his dead wife appeared in his dream and asked him to return home to take care of the children and so he decided to surrender himself to the police.

The suspect, a driver, allegedly strangled his wife because he was suspecting her of sending explicit text messages to a secret lover using Facebook and WhatsApp applications, and denying him sex.

Assistant Superintendent of Police Emmanuel Tetteh Yankah, Crime Officer of the Ashaiman District Police who confirmed the latest occurrence to DAILY GUIDE, explained that John Ninson was arrested on March 6, 2014 and had since confessed to the act of killing his wife, Patience Ninson.


He said the suspect, during interrogation, denied using the rope to strangle his wife to death but rather upon noticing the unfaithfulness of his wife, he attempted using the nylon to commit suicide by hanging and fell on the floor after the rope snapped.

The suspect, according to the District Crime Officer, denied always fighting his wife before having sex with her, but admitted seizing her mobile phone which she attempted to collect when he accidentally pushed her down.

He said his deceased wife hit the edge of the bed with her head and a few minutes later he noticed that she was going off. He therefore decided to go into hiding in the bush at Santuo out of fear that he would be arrested by the police.

According to ASP Yankah, the police were waiting for the autopsy report from the hospital before prosecuting Ninson.

Meanwhile, as at press time yesterday, the mortal remains of Patience were still at the Police Hospital morgue in Accra.
