C/R: Autistic 2 Year Old Boy Buried Alive

 

 

A two year old boy with autism was buried alive by his grandfather last Friday. The incident that ensued at the Dutch Komenda in the Central Region has shocked the community. Due to the boy’s condition, his 70 year-old grandfather considered him a spirit child and buried him at the shores of the coastal town. But, for the timely

 

intervention of the police, he would have died. Many residents have described the incident as barbaric and reprehensible. The Police Commander in the Elmina, Supt Abraham Bansah also disclosed that the suspect, Kwaku Baah perpetrated the act under the direction of a spiritualist. The advice was also given to them by one

 

 

ritualist called Kwaku Baah. He is on the run, he said. Supt. Bansah said the parents of the child have been arrested with their grandfather for conspiracy. They all both conspired with the boy’s grandfather called Kwaku Baah who is 70 years and they did that. So they have all been arrested and they are in our custody, he also said. Meanwhile, the police are on a hunt for the ritualist.
