A 46-year-old farmer at Assin Bepokokoo in the Assin South District of the Central Region has allegedly shot his wife over her refusal to give him ¢2 to buy alcohol.
Victoria Asiedu narrating the incident to Adom News, said Alex Quainoo had earlier requested a torchlight to go on snail hunting.
She explained that the suspect, who is currently on the run, returned around 8:00 pm on Easter Saturday and demanded the money, but she could not provide it.
Her husband, who was not pleased, threatened to kill her and eventually shot her in her two palms after missing the targeted neck.
The victim is currently receiving treatment at the St Francis Xavier Hospital at Assin Fosu.
The Assin South Police Command has since mounted a manhunt for the suspect.
