Man Kills 3-Week-Old Baby For Rituals


The Awutu Bereku District Police Command has arrested a 21-year-old father for allegedly killing his three-week-old baby boy for money rituals.

The suspect, identified as Bright, took the life of his baby boy at Fetteh Kakraba in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region.

According to reports, the incident occurred in the evening of Monday, January 22, 2024, when Bright came to visit the baby and mother with his friend.

In an interview with local radio station, a resident narrated that the child’s mother left the sleeping baby inside the room to run an errand.

The suspect then asked his friend to go and bring the baby from the room, which he did, allegedly without knowing he had ulterior motives.

A resident further disclosed that a search party was launched for the baby immediately after his mother raised an alarm about his disappearance.

Bright’s friend was apprehended after the group had a tip-off that he was the one who took the baby from the room.

He then led the search party to the school park, but Bright had already killed his baby when they got there.

Bright and his friend are in police custody, assisting with investigations.
