A 62-year old Ghanaian lady, Aisha Tetteh and her accomplice, Godson Ablor, 36, have been arrested for dipping the hand of her 13-year-old granddaughter into the fire for stealing meat from the pot.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Accra Regional Command, Effia Tenge, said the incident happened at about 8pm on Tuesday November 27, 2018. She said the two women accused the victim of stealing meat from two separate pots of soup belonging to Aisha and Ablor’s wife on the same day.
Tenge said even though the victim denied, Aisha and Ablor decided to punish her. As part of the punishment, Ablor allegedly used a razor blade to cut the left fingers of the victim before shoving her left hand into the burning charcoal.
Ablor and Aisha initially went into hiding but they have since been charged with causing harm.
