Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang react to lynching of a 90-year-old-woman at Kafabain the East Gonja

Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang running mate of biggest opposition party the NDC has reacted to barbaric lynching of a 90-year-old-woman at Kafabain the East Gonja.

The professor took to her facebook page to condemn the unfortunate act which took place at Kafabain the East Gonja.

My attention has been drawn to the most despicable act of lynching of a 90-year-old-woman at Kafaba in the East Gonja Municipality of the Savanna Region.

I condemn in the strongest terms this barbaric act which has left me, like many I can imagine, deeply sad, indeed.

The elderly in our society rather deserve our love and protection, not this level of unspeakable cruelty.

Old age cannot be synonymous to witchcraft. It is time to build a fair, just and gender sensitive society that respects and values everyone, no matter their age.

It is my expectation that the security agencies will swiftly investigate and bring the culprits to justice.

Moving forward, I hope we shall all work together to raise the level of public education to forestall such tragic occurrences.

My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and may the soul of this unfortunate victim rest in peace.
