‘He gave me water and continued to strangle me’ – Matilda Amissah-Arthur recounts terrifying robbery


Former second Lady, Matilda Amissah-Arthur, the wife of the late former Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, has narrated how she was robbed and almost killed in her bedroom on Tuesday, December 5, 2023.

According to Mrs Amissah-Arthur’s account, the intruder, dressed in black, broke into her room, demanding money and threatening to kill her and anyone who might come to her aid.

Despite handing over $2,200 and 50 euros, the robber was displeased with the amount and turned her room upside down, searching for more valuables.

In a video in which Mrs Amissah-Arthur was giving a testimony, she said the attacker vowed to kill her and anyone who tried to save her, hence her compliance.

In a bizarre twist, Mrs Amissah-Arthur requested water during the ordeal, and the attacker obligingly fetched it from her fridge.

However, instead of showing mercy, he callously continued strangling her after she took a sip.

“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.”
