Nonagenarian murder: Pentecostal Council wants ‘witch camps’ shut down

The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) wants the government to shut down ‘witch camps’ in the northern part of the country, following the gruesome murder of a nonagenarian in Kafaba, a village near Salaga in the Savannah Region.

The Council also wants the state to “find ways and means of reintegrating inmates of such camps who are mostly elderly women and sometimes their children and grandchildren into the society.”

“We must use the lessons of such gruesome murders to right the wrongs in our society. The elderly, weak and vulnerable must be targeted for the care and protection of our society,” the GPCC said in a release issued Wednesday, July 29, 2020.

Madam Akua Denteh believed to be 94-years-old, was lynched on July 23, by a mob after she was accused of being a witch by a local priestess. A video of the incident went viral on social media and generated widespread condemnation.

Police on Tuesday arrested the chief of Kafaba, Zackaria Yahaya, for his alleged role in the gruesome murder of Madam Denteh.

Kafaba Chief
Zackaria Yahaya was arrested Tuesday at Damongo in the West Gonja Municipality.

He is being treated as a suspect in the lynching of Denteh and is expected to help police with investigations and arrest of the other culprits who have since fled town.

The GPCC statement signed by the General Secretary, Rev. Emmanuel Barrigah, called for an “urgent need to inject some discipline and sanity into our everyday behaviour as a society. We must intensify our education of the public on what their rights as citizens are and what they can do or not do so as to make the society a safe and secure place to live in.”
