The police have arrested the native witch doctor at the center of the lynching of the over 90-yeqr-old lady at Kafaba.
A statement from the police, this morning, indicates that the suspect, Sherina Mohammed, alias Alhajia was last nightarrested at her hideout in Yeji. The 40-year-old Sherina is described by the police as “the mastermind” behind the killing of the old woman who was accused of being a witch.
Madam Akua Denteh was declared a witch by the native doctor and subsequently lynched. Videos of the heinous crime which surfaced on social media showed two women brutally assaulting the old lady. The suspects subsequently went into hiding when social media users expressed anger and called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the culprits.
But days later, one of the principal suspects who were seen in the video lynching the poor old lady, was arrested. Upon her arrest, Latifah Bumaye claimed she was spiritually manipulated to take part in the lynching of the old woman. She further claimed she didn’t know what she did until she was confronted with video footage of her mercilessly torturing the old woman, whom she describes as her grandmother. She has since been in police custody, and her “partner-in-crime”, Sherina Mohammed is also in police custody.
