More information has become available days after the tragic incidence of an attempted murder and suicide by a Ghanaian man in Ohio was revealed by the worldwide media outlet Fox 28.
Previous accounts claim that Kwabena Michael Amoako fatally shot himself after fatally shooting his wife many times.
The event, which has shocked the neighbors, reportedly began as a domestic violence dispute.
According to Nana Obiri Yeboah, Chief of Asanteman, Columbus, Ohio, contrary to earlier claims, the dead was not the Sumankwahene of the Asanteman Association in Columbus until his passing. He made this clarification in a conversation with blogger ‘Hello Frank’.
He stated that the late Michael Amoako was a former Sumankwahene and not in service at the time of the occurrence, despite the fact that he acknowledged having served in such capacity in the past.
The first Sumankwahene was my brother Amoako; he was succeeded by another. Since the chieftaincy system in the United States is governed by the constitution, when a chief’s term is up, he or she must hand over power to the next eligible person. Thus, a new one has been installed; his name is Nana Korankye, according to Nana Obiri Yeboah.
Despite the fact that the couple had previously experienced problems, he also pointed out that nobody was aware of how severe those problems had become.
“He wasn’t a peaceful person, but I won’t call him violent. He was well-liked in the neighborhood.
As is common in many marital homes, we were aware that the couple was having some marital problems. But we never heard about it or learned the specifics of how horrible it was. He had previously resided with his wife; they had experienced separation and even returned together to start a family.
Additionally, Nana Obiri Yeboah affirmed that although his wife is currently in critical condition, she is not actually dead as some stories had said.
“The wife is still alive; she is not dead, as some sources claim. I implore us all to pray for her. We should pray since she is still in the hospital and has had a good operation, but she is still in a critical state, he said.
The youngsters are currently living with one of their aunts and going through the appropriate steps to be able to recover from the trauma, according to the Asanteman Chief.
Additionally, he exhorted all Americans of Ghanaian descent to refrain from keeping firearms in their homes.
“Guns ought to be banned. We Americans are not murderers, and even if something were to happen without a gun, it wouldn’t progress to that point. It will cause us to make decisions that we will later regret, he said.
According to Nana Obiri Yeboah, police and American officials have chosen to return the remains to the family. He claimed that this occurred after the leadership visited some of them to discuss burial arrangements.
