The suspect, Nicholas Baah is said to have committed the heinous crime after the lady, Mavis Simpson, 26 ended the relationship.
A journalist with Anyidado FM in the Central region, Kofi Adjei who reported the incident said Mavis ended the relationship after she discovered Nicholas had lied about his profession.
“The suspect told Mavis he was a soldier but after some investigations, Mavis discovered he was a scrap dealer so she decided to end the relationship after Nicholas told her the truth” he added.
Kofi Adjei said feeling peeved, the suspect decided to pour acid on her face to make her unattractive to other men in the area, injuring her severely.
Nicholas Baah is current in police custody pending investigations.
