The community perpetrated the acts after a soothsayer, identified as Hajia Filina pronounced her a witch and spiritual force behind the lack of development in the area.
The development had been condemned by Ghanaians including the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Peace Council, the Chief Imam, some NGO’s among others.
So far, the Savannah Regional Police Command has arrested the chief of the community Seidu Yahaya after a call from the children of the late Akua Denteh for his arrest.
The Ghana Police had since offered GHC 2,000 for information on their whereabout.
