A 26-year-old woman by name Esi Dora, has killed her newborn baby by heinously hitting her against a Palm Tree at Breman Amoanda in the Asikuma Odobeng Brakwa District of the Central Region.
Information reaching mediaghananews.com indicates that this is the second time the woman has committed such a gruesome act as she threw her baby into a pit last year. It took the benevolence of people to immediately retrieve the baby from the toilet pit to save the child’s life.
The baby’s mother in a conversation with Kasapa FM’s Yaw Boagyan lamented that the baby was dead before she was born so she immediately threw her into a bush.
She admitted that she hit the baby against a palm tree while she was dead, adding that it would have been difficult for her to cater for the baby even if she had survived because of the financial difficulty she finds herself in.
It is interesting to know that both the woman’s family and residents claims that the suspect is not known to have any mental problem that makes her do things like this.
The Unit Committee Member for Breman Amoanda, Mr. Sarpong condemned the criminal action of the woman and made it known that some rituals will be performed to appease the gods of the town before the baby is buried.
