Mother Assaults 13-Year-Old Son After Pastor’s Accusa …
A 13-year-old boy has been allegedly assaulted by his mother on accusations of being a witch at Gomoa Fetteh Kakraba in the Central Region.
Mother of the victim identified as Juliana Arthur, 32, tortured his son after her pastor had accused him of being a witch.
Recounting the incident, the victim Ibrahim Tafa told Kingdom FM‘s Kaakyire Kweku Ademah that his mother has been violently abusing him for several days because she believed he was possessed by evil spirits.
“My mother has been threatening to kill and dump me into a river behind our house any time I offend her. The little mistake I do, my own mother will based on the Pastor’s claims that I am a witch and beat and deliberately assault me”.
Meanwhile, the Assembly member for Gomoa Buduburam Lot Arthur reacting to the issue said “upon receiving a distress call from a neighbor concerning the incident I quickly rushed to the scene and realized that the situation was very terrible after an interrogation with the victim”.
“I therefore called the District Police Command for the arrest of the suspect, hence commence investigations into the incident”, he added.
Describing the act as ‘disgraceful’, he urged religious leaders and pastors to desist from such acts.
