A nursing mother has been convicted for sending a chilling death wish messages to the mother of her boyfriend.
She was made to sign a bond of good behaviour for two years (24 months) following her conviction by an Accra Circuit Court.
In default, she will serve a six-month prison term.
The text messages by Nana Adwoa, 20, also included threats and abusive language.
The court heard that Adwoa sent the messages because her boyfriend’s mum had told her son not to take care of their two children.
On April 6, 2018, Adwoa sent some abusive and threatening messages to her boyfriend’s mother wishing her dead, according to the state prosecutor.
“If you are really sick like you claim, I wish you dead,” the prosecutor, Agnes Boafo, read to the court.
She also told the court that Adwoa sent a threatening message to the woman saying she would die soon.
In one of the messages, she also referred to the woman as an old wretched witch and that the woman had killed her husband.
The woman after receiving Adwoa’s messages lodged a complaint at the Nungua Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service.
The accused was later arrested and after investigations, she was charged with the offence accordingly.
