Member of Parliament (MP) for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu Ekuful, has revealed that the murdered artiste manager, Fennec Okyere had sleepless nights over his marriage with Amakie.
Ursula, a foster mother to Fennec, has also promised to love and care for his only child and said she tried in vain to teach the deceased to love with his head and not his heart but the young man could simply not learn to do that.
“I grieve and mourn too because I know how much you were hurt and the sleepless nights you had because of the way your marriage turned out …Two months after you got married, your wife left the matrimonial home and never returned. You shed countless tears, pleaded, begged and cajoled her to return to no avail. I say this with a lot of pain for I know how it hurt you,” Ursula noted: “You just loved her as Christ loved the church, wept and all, but it wasn’t reciprocated. We kept telling you to move on, but you wouldn’t, you couldn’t and kept hoping. I know you are at peace now and no one can hurt you again. SE ASA! I promise to love and care for your son.”
Ursula’s accusations against Fennec’s wife were part of her tribute to him during his burial service last Saturday. It is already public knowledge that Fennec’s wife, Amakie, was prevented from attending and taking part in the funeral of her late husband.
The widow has announced that she would be organizing yet another funeral service for her husband, tomorrow Saturday, May 3, although his corpse was buried on Saturday, April 26.
Amakie has also revealed she does not know where her late husband was buried and did not even set eyes on his corpse because his family prevented her from partaking in the burial, memorial and thanksgiving service of her late husband.
Amakie and Fennec have a young son and were not divorced prior to his death.
