Photo: Wife of police officer who murdered his children and mother-in-law suspects 'spiritual forces'

Wife of the police officer who murdered his two children and mother-in-law (read here) suspects he was pushed by spiritual forces to commit the gruesome crime.
Lance Corporal Wilfred Amuzu killed his mother-in-law and his two young sons (three months and one-year-old +) with a rifle which he had booked for duty on Monday evening, July 25.
The mother-in-law was said to be bathing her grandchild when the Lance Corporal shot her and the baby, killing them both, after which he shot the other child before committing suicide.
Rapha Iddrisu, 29,  told journalists today at the Devtraco Police Station in Community 25 that there was no way her husband would have committed the act if he was in his right mind. The devastated woman said she noticed changes in her husband some months back. His utterances had changed and some things he said did not make sense.

Rapha also confirmed that she had made a complaint at the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) about her abusive husband, adding that he 
had accused her of witchcraft and blamed her for his inability to succeed and also threatened to kill her. It was the threat to kill that pushed her to look for a new accommodation for herself, her mother and her two young children.

On that tragic day, Rapha said she had gone to her sister’s house in Ashiaman to ask if it was possible for her and the children to move to her house because she no longer felt comfortable in the house.
She said eyewitnesses told her that they heard four gunshots in the house but were unperturbed because they didn't think anyone was being killed. She revealed that she had audio recordings of certain absurd things her husband had said. This convinced her that her husband was unstable and something was pushing him to turn into someone different.
The Tema Regional Police has begun investigations into circumstances which led to the triple murder-suicide.
