A man who slaughtered his own child for money making ritual purposes has been arrested by the police in Ghana.
A 31-year-old farmer identified as Abdul Salam has been arrested by the police in Ghana for allegedly cutting off the head and legs of his six-year-old son for money making ritual purposes.
According to Energy FM, the incident happened in the Adidaase area, Amanso Amenfi in Wassa Amenfi of the western region, Ghana.
The suspect was arrested after the little boy went missing and he could not explain his whereabouts, forcing neighbours to report the matter to the police.
After the police arrested Salam, he allegedly confessed that in his quest to make money, he had consulted a native doctor to prepare a charm for him and the herbalist instructed him to bring the head and legs of a small boy.
He thereafter led the police to a bush where he had buried the remains of the child and it was exhumed and taken to a hospital for autopsy while the suspect was detained at the Asanco police command.
