Nigerian allegedly beheads lover in Ghana

Police in Ghana have reportedly arrested a Nigerian man for allegedly beheading his girlfriend also said to be a Nigerian.

A video of the arrest went viral on the internet on Tuesday.

The video shows the moment a corpse, believed to be that of the woman, is recovered by the police.

A Facebook user identified as Smile Baba, who posted the video, claimed the incident happened in Spintex, Accra, the capital of Ghana.

He shared, “Very sad development this afternoon. I have just arrived from a crime scene here in Accra, Ghana, where a Nigerian young man beheaded his Nigerian girlfriend in Spintex, Accra, Ghana. My question is, who actually lies to these young boys and girls that money rituals truly exist? Ladies, you have to be careful of who you trust; it doesn’t matter how calm the man looks. Just be careful.”

Spokesman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission Abdur-Rahmam Balogun told PUNCH that the agency was not aware of the incident.

He said, “Our stand is that any Nigerian that commits a crime, let the law of the land take its course. The Nigerian government has no role to play in such instance.”
