The residents of Mankessim in the Central Region of Ghana have called on the security agencies to intensify patrols in the area following the gruesome murder of a pregnant woman whose body was found in a bush.
The residents said they were shocked to have seen the body of the pregnant woman lying in a pool of blood with some part of her body being removed and taken away.
According to reports from an eyewitness to the scene, the woman could have suffered forced labor as her fetus was also lying beside her lifeless body and a severely injured at her head.
Residents of Mankessim said they are now living in fear because the issue of murder has gone high in the country with people being killed for ritual purposes recently.
The people of Mankessim are, therefore, calling the Ghana Police administration to, with immediate effect, take steps to address the situation and bring the culprits before the laws of Ghana.
