A 37-year-old mother of four, Donkor Margeret, is battling for her life at the Tamale Teaching Hospital after her husband inflicted machete wounds on all parts of her body for demanding her share of proceeds from the sale of their cocoa farm.
According to the victim, her husband sold their cocoa farm to relocate to Tatale with the family.
“He told me one day we needed to relocate to the village and that he was putting our farm out for sale and will give me GH¢10,000 as my share of the sale to start a business which I agreed.”
She said after 10 months of relocating to Tatale, and upon several demands for her share of the money, the husband failed to honor his side of the agreement and became abusive.
She narrates how her husband attacked her with a machete.
