Just In: Police arrests Kafaba chief over death of 90-year-old woman

Just In: Police arrests Kafaba chief over death of 90-year-old woman a website has said.

In the video shown by TV3 on News 360, the old woman is seen being whipped and hit severally.

It is unclear what prompted the supposed soothsayer to accuse the old woman of witchcraft and her subsequent lynching but scenes in the video can only be described as barbaric.

The chief, who presented himself to the police upon invitation, was arrested upon arrival at Damongo.

He is being interrogated by a four-member panel in Damongo.

 

The chief first reported to the Salaga District Police Command before proceeding to Damongo, where he was subsequently arrested.

Savannah Regional Police Commander DCOP Enoch Bediako said the arrest of the chief will help police in their investigations.

3news.com reported that family of 90-year-old woman Akua Denteh called for the arrest of the chief, accusing him of inviting the spiritualist to perpetrate the crime.

This the chief denied after 3news.com visited the community on Saturday, July 25.

The chief is the first to be arrested since the lynching of Akua Denteh on Thursday, July 23.
