Police in Asikuma Odobeng Brakwa in the Central Region have arrested a couple for allegedly burying their two-year-old son alive, YEN.com.gh has gathered.
Paul Adoba and Maame Atta were reportedly lured into committing the nefarious act by a fetish priestess.
The priestess declared the two-year-old a spirit child because he can neither walk nor talk and had to be killed, Myjoyonline.com reported.
Abubakar Mohammed who is the tenant of the couple saw them burying the two-year-old alive. Recounting the incident, he said the fetish priestess was the one who dug the hole and lowered the child into it at midnight.
“I saw them carrying the child to where the pit was being dug. It was around midnight. It was awkwardly strange and so, I got up to close my window,” Myjoyonline.com quoted him as saying.
The chief of Breman Brakwa, Nana Kofi Hammed, was shocked by the development.
“Even when day old children die, they are not buried like that, let alone burying a child alive. What’s so grievous is that they buried this child close to the mainstream we all depend on,” he stated.
In other news, a police officer was interdicted for insulting President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, YEN.com.gh earlier reported.
Corporal Frederick Kwaku Dzemeki, who is stationed at Prampram was arrested by the Tema Regional Police Command.
He reportedly insulted the president and the vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on social media.
Corporal Dzemeki yanked invectives at the president and his vice during an online show hosted by maverick broadcaster, Captain Smart, Kasapafmonline reported citing police wireless message.
“Our leaders are very stupid and stubborn. They don’t reason at all. Ghana is sick. Number 1 is sick and number two too is sick,” the interdicted officer wrote in the comment section of the online show on Facebook.
