A 26-year-old female nurse named Comfort allegedly suffered seven stab wounds from her ex-boyfriend during a visit to her residence, as reported by JoyNews. The distressing incident occurred after Comfort denied her former boyfriend’s request to spend the night at her home in Kumasi.
The report highlighted that Comfort and her ex-lover ended their relationship approximately 5 months ago and share a one-and-a-half-year-old child. The altercation leading to the violent episode unfolded on January 27, 2024, when Comfort refused her ex-boyfriend’s request to stay over.
In response to the denial, the ex-boyfriend reportedly stabbed Comfort seven times on her thighs and belly, resulting in multiple wounds. Neighbors intervened and rushed her, in a critical condition, to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for urgent medical attention.
Fortunately, doctors at the hospital were able to save Comfort, who has since been discharged. Meanwhile, the ex-boyfriend, in an attempt to take his own life by slitting his belly, is currently undergoing treatment at the emergency center of the same hospital.
