Suspect prophetess Ama Nkansah of Christ Faith International Church, 64, had fled to Gomoa Ajumako after her involvement in the heinous act, but was apprehended on Tuesday.
Residents and opinion leaders in the Central Region’s Gomoa Ajumako have arrested and turned over to police the Prophetess, on whose advice a couple buried their 2-year-old boy alive at Gomoa Eshiem.
After being in hiding in the community for four days, angry residents spotted her while buying food and immediately arrested her, putting her in a taxi and transporting her to the Bremam Asikuma Police Station.
She has been detained to assist Breman Asikuma Police with their investigations.
The Breman Asikuma Police in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District have arrested a man and his wife for allegedly burying their two-year-old baby alive on the advice of their pastor.
The police are on the trail of the pastor who is on the run.
The incident occurred in Brakwa Awoyom, a Bremang Brakwa suburb.
According to reports, the child was buried near the community’s water supply stream.
The Parents, Paul Adoba and Maame Ataa, are now in police custody assisting investigations.
An eyewitness told Kasapa FM’s Yaw Boagyan that he was sleeping Friday night when he heard people talking in the distance and went to his window to see what was going on. According to him, he witnessed the child’s parents and the female pastor burying the live child in a hole.
When the suspects left, the eyewitness said he rushed to confirm what he had seen, only to find the child dead and covered in blood.
