The Asokwa District Court in the Ashanti Region has remanded two cheating lovers who mistakenly hired a police commander to kill the lady’s husband. The court presided by Justice Korkor Achaw Owusu, ordered the two to re-appear on May 21, 2020.
The story of the error-ridden contract killing scheme has left many people wondering if this was an act of God or just a poorly executed scheme.
The 32-year-old cheating wife, Mavis Brepor, allegedly plotted with her 50-year-old lover, Patrick Asare, to kill her husband, David Gator, 52. David Gator, a farmer has been married to Mavis for close to 12 years with three children. The planned contract killing was to take place on Saturday, May 2 to allow Mavis and her boyfriend to have each other to themselves.
However, a call placed by the boyfriend Asare to a would-be contract killer landed on the phone of the Manhyia Divisional Police Commander, ACP Kwaku Buah instead of the hitman.
The commander feigned interest and lured Asare to Kumasi supposedly to take the hitman to the location of Gator. He was arrested on site.
Their various pleas to the court were turned down by the Judge as they have been remanded to re-appear in court. Kumasi-Based Luv 99.5 FM reported that the courtroom was packed and police had to step in to enforce social distancing directives.
