Lawyers of the Central Regional Minister, Ama Benyiwa Doe, have written to the National Media Commission, denying reports that the honourable minister once upon a time poisoned her husband to death in Nigeria several years ago.
The apparently vexed lawyers are challenging the allegation of murder leveled against Benyiwa Doe by one Dennis Doe-Vormavor, who claims to be a nephew of the late Mr. Doe, Benyiwa Doe’s former husband. Dennis Doe-Vormavor, believed to be currently residing in Glasgow UK, had alleged that his uncle and the Central Regional Minister got married in Ghana but moved to Nigeria where he got killed by Auntie Ama because of jealousy emanating from her inability to give birth. Auntie Ama, through her lawyers, has denied the allegation in its entirety but has not explained the circumstances that led to the death of Mr. Doe.
Dennis, in an article had stated: “Ama Benyiwa used to work at the University of Ghana, Legon administration as a typist and got married to my uncle who was also a lecturer at the University…Eventually, Mr. and Mrs. Doe moved to settle in Nigeria in the 1980s. “In Nigeria, because Mr and Mrs Doe tried tirelessly for a child but could not produce one, Mr. Doe, the husband seemingly lost interest, and Mrs. Ama Benyiwa Doe resorted to accusing her husband, Mr. Doe, of womanizing and cheating on her.
The situation became worse when Mr. Doe befriended a Nigerian woman (Ms Tolou) in Lagos. “Mr. Doe’s girlfriend had a child for him and as a result, Mrs. Ama Benyiwa Doe could not hold her anger and therefore decided to eliminate the husband with poisonous substances which created a debilitating effect on the man and which eventually led to his death.
The Nigerian authorities suspected foul play in Mr. Doe’s death and opened an investigation into the circumstances surrounding it. “To cover up the shame from her accusers, she quickly camouflaged the security and the investigation team in Nigeria at the time by adopting the child from her dead husband and the beautiful girlfriend.
It actually took the effort of the then Ghana High Commissioner to Nigeria and the Ghana Foreign Affairs department under President Rawlings to help Mrs. Benyiwa Doe to flee to Ghana under diplomatic immunity,” Dennis Doe-Vomavor noted in his article.
