Ama Foriwaa, a four-month pregnant woman whose husband stabbed her in the abdomen on Wednesday has died out of her wounds on Friday morning at the Intensive Care Unit of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).
The husband, 27-year-old ex-convict, Kwadwo Yeboah who committed the heinous crime also stabbed his own two children with her to death on that fateful day at Sepe Timpom, a Kumasi suburb.
Both children, Ama Francisca, one-and-a-half, and Abena Adwubi, four, had their intestines gushed out when their bodies were found nine hours after the attack.
Kwadwo Yeboah, the murder suspect, is currently on the run.
Before her death, Foriwaa said Yeboah had first stabbed her around 11 a.m. before stabbing the children in turns.
She said she fell on the floor moments after she was stabbed and feigned death, the Daily Graphic reports.
She said Yeboah, with whom she had forged a close relationship for over five years, satisfied that he had achieved his intention, turned his attention to Adwubi, whom she stabbed with the same sharp knife, and seconds later he stabbed Francisca too.
Foriwaa said after stabbing the children, the suspect laid them on her as they bled profusely, disregarding the agony they were going through and the plea of the children to be given water to drink.
According to her, before the act, Yeboah had first pushed some materials into her mouth to prevent her from shouting to attract attention.
He also increased the volume of the television set in the room to prevent the tenants in their compound house from hearing any noise that would emanate from the room.
