The victim, Oforiwaa, is currently receiving treatment at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and hence was not present in court.

According to the prosecution, Oforiwaa had been threatening to end the relationship for some time now as she suspected Donkor of cheating on her.

C/Inspector Yeboah said on October 12, 2016, around 10:00p.m., Donkor came home from work but did not find food to eat.

He subsequently picked a quarrel with his girlfriend over the matter, but a witness in the case intervened.

The prosecutor said at about 1:00a.m the next day, Donkor went for the acid, poured it on the victim who was fast asleep, and escaped.

A witness came to the aid of the woman after she woke up screaming. But Donkor emerged, claiming some of the acid was also poured on him.

The prosecutor said Donkor together with the witness rushed Oforiwaa to the Faith Hospital and she was referred to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital for treatment.

However, Donkor proceeded to make a report with the Darkuman police that someone had poured acid on his girlfriend, adding that he suspected the witness in the case.

The prosecution said the witness was arrested, but after thorough investigations, it emerged that it was Donkor who committed the crime.
