Acid Over Guns

Posted on Posted in Features & Documentaries

Following the incessant reports of people acquiring acid to deform persons who may have hurt or offended them particularly in failed romantic relationships, there have been growing concerns about the ease with which people acquire the harmful substance in the open market.

Many people have suffered devastating and perpetual injuries from acid attacks, some of which have resulted in deaths. In Ghana politicians, lovers and innocent victims have died as a result of this cruel act.

In this report below, I investigate this troubling phenomenon to find out what the relevant authorities are doing to curb the easy access to the poisonous and destructive substance.

NOTE: This report was published on exactly a year ago. Eric Ohemeng, one of the acid victims is a final year student of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) and he is still fighting for justice.


Enyonam was arrested a day after the report aired on Citi 97.3 FM but has since been granted bail.
