A thirty-five (35) year old woman, Larteley Mensah, has allegedly buried her eight (8) year-old daughter Tani Sani, after she reportedly assaulted her to death.
The suspect led the police, pathologist and some officials from the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), to exhume the body where she buried the daughter.
According to DSP Theophilus Asirifi, the police had a tip off that; the suspect had allegedly beaten her daughter to death and proceeded to bury her at the Korle-Gornor Beach some two weeks ago.
When arrested, the suspect told the police that she was with the father due to ill health.
However, it turned to be false. After interrogation, she confessed to burying the daughter after realizing she died following a supposed sickness which she [deceased] suffered occasionally.
DSP Asirifi told the media that the suspect is still in police custody following a court order and has been charged with murder and hindrance of inquest.
He further revealed that, the father of deceased had a misunderstanding with the suspect and so brought the late Sani to the mother. Sani according to police was ill and vomited.
The mother asked her to cover the vomit with dust but because Sani, was unable to do that, the suspect allegedly assaulted and beat her to death. She later buried the daughter at the beach in the company of the landlord and a former fiancee who are currently at large, he concluded.
