Mr Acquaye said at about 5p.m. on April 5, this year, Gamor attended a naming ceremony at Omanjor near Accra with his new girlfriend and saw Georgina dancing at the ceremony with a man.

He said later, Gamor called the woman aside and inquired about the pregnancy and when she insisted she was still keeping it, he (Gamor) pounced on her and beat her until they were separated by those around.

But Gamor was said to have gone to his house at Ofankor and returned with a locally manufactured gun and started threatening to shoot the woman.
