A 10-month-old baby girl has been found dead after allegedly being buried alive at the Gomoa Nyanyano seashore in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region.
The motionless body of the infant was found on Thursday, March 17, 2021, at 5:30 pm. by some children who went on crab hunting at the seashore.
Eyewitnesses report the deceased was wrapped with white clothes and also with a black polythene bag and cotton wool put in her mouth, nose, and ears.
Residents suspect the deceased was offered as a sacrifice for financial purposes.
They insinuate the act was a direction given to supposed “Sakawa guys” by their spiritualist owing the head of the 10-month-old baby was turned upside down whiles the legs were up to when she was found.
‘We suspect the baby was not dead before being buried and apparently she died at the process we suspect is a direction from their Sakawa spiritualist,” the eyewitnesses told local media.
The body of the deceased has been conveyed by the Gomoa Nyanyano District Police command to the Winneba Trauma and Specialist Hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.
