A body of a lifeless baby was found buried in the sand on the sea shore at Nanyano in Kosao in the Central Region of Ghana. The body was found by three young boys who were playing along the sea shores and collecting crabs.
As the boys saw the dead baby, they hurriedly called on some women closed to the scene. The presence of the women drew the attention of people near by and within a short time the place was fully packed with observers.
Rumours has it that the10-months baby was allegedly used for money rituals. It was reported from the same area last week that, a boy who had gone for money rituals dropped his ring and his friend took it. The ring got stucked to his friends finger. It is therefore alleged that, the boy must have sacrificed the baby to enable him remove the ring.
Due to these suspicions, the neighbors in the community got furious and matched up to the boys house as they suspected the alleged sakawa boy may have hand in the baby's death.
The body of baby has been deposited at the morgue by the Kasoa Divisional Police Service.
Meanwhile the Police have informed the general public that investigations are ongoing to bring the perpetrators to book to face the full rigour of the law.
