YEN.com.gh tells the chilling story of how a cheating husband was saved from being disgraced by his wife in the wake of the gas explosion as he was stopped from sending his girlfriend home following the disaster.
The Atomic Junction gas explosion continues to bring shock and anguish to the very victims who suffered from its devastating nature. The disaster, which is feared it have killed close to 7 persons and injured over 100 victims, has seen government express a major resolve to ensure that such a disaster never resurfaces again.
The disaster has seen victims narrate various sides of their experiences but these experiences have as well attracted some weird revelations especially this one about a young married man who was on his way of breaking his marriage with a “side-chick”.
Kwabena Asiedu reveals to YEN that he had picked up a lady at the mall for fun. But just some few meters away from the Atomic Junction fire, the lady out of fear and anguish begged him to return her to the mall where they had earlier met and that she was no longer interested in their engagement.
“She begged me to let her return. She was scared when she saw the flames in the sky. It was like God was angry at us. We saw death in the face,” he narrated in a shrill voice.
When asked the reason behind him cheating on his wife, Kwabena Asiedu confessed that his wife was on the night shift and that he thought he could spend the night with a different woman but as it turned out, she was home just when he arrived.
“I think God saved me from disgrace because our marriage could have ended right there and then as I was taking this lady along,” he stated.
Many statesmen and celebrities including past president John Mahama, Captain of the Black Stars Asamoah Gyan and Rapper M.anifest have all expressed their condolence to the bereaved families and sent their warm wishes to the burn victims.
