According to family sources, he did not know that he had killed his wife.

One of the sources said, “He (Pa Okere) was having advanced dementia and everyone within the village knows his health condition. He didn’t know that he had killed his wife because when he was asked about her, he said she was sleeping.

“We took him to the hospital; they said we should come after the pandemic. So we couldn’t take him to the hospital because of this Coronavirus. You know how hospitals react to cases like this”.

Another source told newsmen that few weeks ago the man had gone to the village church, reporting that his vehicle had been stolen while the car was parked in the house.
