The Awutu Bereku District Police Command has arrested a 21-year-old father, only named as Bright, in connection with the death of his three-week-old child.
The crime, considered to be related to money rituals, occurred in Fetteh Kakraba, Gomoa East District, Central Region.
The terrible situation occurred on a Monday night, when Bright paid a visit to the infant and his mother.
During this moment, the infant was sleeping, and the mother had gone out to get something.
According to an account offered by Bright’s buddy to Adom News, he became involved unintentionally when Bright requested him to retrieve the infant from the room. He had no idea what Bright’s true intentions were.
The friend recalled, “I met Bright on the school park with the baby, and a few minutes later, the mother called that he was missing.”
After learning of the baby’s absence, a search team was quickly established.
The acquaintance was detained when suspicions were raised that he was involved in the baby’s removal from the room.
The accomplice led the search group to the school park, but they arrived too late; Bright had already slain the infant. Bright and his companion are currently in arrest and collaborating with the continuing inquiry.
