27-year-old Mavis Brepor, wife of David Gator, 52, has been arrested for plotting with her boyfriend to kill her husband at Pamen near Kwabeng in the Eastern Region.
Mavis and David are married with three children.
The plot to kill David Gator was disclosed after the two mistakenly called the Manhyia Divisional Police Commander instead of the would-be contract killer.
Mavis, and her 50-year old boyfriend, Patrick Asare, intended to kill David so they could live together.
According to the Manhyia Divisional Police Commander, initial investigation indicates that Mavis and Patrick had gone into a blood covenant to be together.
In a interview, ACP Kwaku Buah, the Manhyia Divisional Police Commander, revealed that during the conversation, Patrick Asare was ready to offer GHC 100,000 for the murder to be carried out.
The Police Commander feigned interest in the contract and used undercover investigators and detectives to talk to the suspect.
Mr Buah said it took the Police about three to four weeks to lure the suspect to come to Kumasi after they made him believe throughout the cell phone conversations that they were contract killers from Sefwi.
He said they told him (suspect) to come to Kumasi so that they could follow him to the town to execute the killing since they did not know the town.
