According to the eyewitness, the man said a misunderstanding that had ensued between him and the deceased resulted in him sleeping in the hall, but he woke up to the sight of his wife spraying pepper on his entire body.

The eyewitness, who pleaded anonymity said the victim’s husband told them he attempted to wash off the pepper from his body but that angered his wife even further and she sprayed more pepper on him.

It was at this point that he rushed out of the house to see his car burning.

But the Assistant Fire Officer, Francis Opoku Amponsah, said he could not confirm these eyewitness reports.

“We are still conducting our investigations. These are the views of the public. We are still conducting our investigations. Once we are done, we will let the public know the real cause of the fire,” he said.
