A 23-year old waitress, Patience Adjei, who suspected her husband of cheating on her, yesterday drank a solution of Guinness and petrol in an attempt to end her life.

However, a timely intervention by her husband, Ebenezer Obeng, who rushed her depressed wife to a nearby clinic, which was just some few meters away, saved the situation.

As at press time yesterday, Madam Adjei’s condition was described as stable according to medical officers. The incident occurred within the Ghana Industrial and Commercial Estates Limited (GICEL), where incidentally, the office of The Independent is located.

Narrating the incident to the Independent, Mr Obeng said, a little misunderstanding ensued between them when his wife accused him of cheating on her just because “I did not sleep in the house last night.”

According to him, he decided to pass the night at his junior brother’s place and that, the accusation being leveled against him by his wife was totally baseless.

Mr Obeng added that, his wife, who apparently was not satisfied with the explanation, decided to end her life. “She told me she would commit suicide, but I thought she was joking,” the worried husband added.

He told The Independent that, after a while, he realised that, the wife was terribly vomiting at their backyard, “but I got alarmed when she told me that, the vomiting was as a result of the solution of Guinness and petrol she had drunk,” Mr Obeng stated. “She immediately collapsed moments after vomiting. So I got scared and shouted for help,” he added. According to the husband, a few good Samaritans came around and helped him to rush her ailing wife to the Ramseyer Medical Center, which is just beneath the offices of the Independent.

Mr Obeng insisted that, he has never cheated on her wife and that, on the night in question, he slept at his brother’s house because it was quite late. “I love my wife and I will never cheat on her,” he stated.
