A 90-year old woman was beaten to death at Kafaba, near Salaga in the Savannah Region of Ghana.
According to a report first published by Graphic Online, the attack was masterminded by one Tanko and other accomplices upon suspicion that the deceased, Akua Denteh was a witch. Detailing the story as presented by Graphic Online, Mahama Salami aged 60 years of Mempeasem, a suburb of Salaga reported to the police that he had received information at 11 am from his sister, Mahama Memuna that his mother, Akua Denteh aged 90 had been accused of being a witch.
This consensus was ridiculously arrived at because a known fetish priest in the area had told the family so. For this reason, the ‘criminals’ pounced on the old woman and beat her until she fell unconscious and died a few minutes later.
The police have declared Tanko and his accomplice wanted as the report says they are currently at large.
