Matilda Amissah-Arthur, the widow of the late Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur and former Second Lady, has shared a harrowing experience of being assaulted and nearly losing her life during a robbery in her home on December 5, 2023.

Mrs. Amissah-Arthur recounted that a burglar, clad in black, forced entry into her bedroom, demanding cash while issuing death threats against her and potential rescuers.

Even after surrendering $2,200 and 50 euros, the assailant was not satisfied and ransacked her bedroom in search of additional treasures.

In a recorded testimony, Mrs. Amissah-Arthur revealed that the assailant was determined to take her life and deter any attempts at rescue, leading to her reluctant cooperation.

In an unexpected turn of events, when Mrs. Amissah-Arthur asked for water amidst the attack, the assailant retrieved it from her refrigerator.

Yet, in a cruel act, the attacker resumed strangling her immediately after she drank.

“I thought I was dreaming. So, I sat on my bed and rubbed my face just to be sure that I wasn’t dreaming. And there he was standing there, and he said, if you shout and somebody comes, I’ll kill them and kill you. So, I was sitting on my bed, and he said give me the money.”

“We were renovating our mother’s house so my siblings brought money and the money was with me. Quickly, I took the $2,200 dollars and gave him, and I had 50 euros of my own and I gave him, and I took my purse, gave the cedis to him, then he counted the money and said, this small money.”

“He got angry. He turned my room upside down, and of course, he didn’t find money or any jewellery. And then he said, ‘You wasted my time, so I will kill you. But I have to call my boss.’ By this time, he had dragged me from the bed and was hitting my head on the ground,”

“He spoke on the phone for a couple of minutes and said, ‘My boss says I should shoot you, but I won’t shoot you, I will strangle you so that you’ll die a slow death and next time you come, you’ll have money.’ So, he started strangling me.”

“I got thirsty at some point, and I said, “I am thirsty.” He stopped strangling me, went to my fridge for water, opened it, and put it in my mouth, just when I started drinking, he snapped it, closed it, and continued strangling me,”
