Ghana: Girl's menstruation saves her from being used for rituals
Narrating her daughter’s ordeal, Esther said that her daughter after being kidnapped by unknown assailants was taken to an unknown place and in the process of undressing her for the said rituals, the fetish priest discovered she was menstruating and ordered her unfit for the for the ritual.
Esther added that the assailants then left her daughter who had been kidnapped on last Monday, May 9, at around 1700 hours when she was attending choir meeting back home blind-folded at a nearby school in the vicinity.
ASP Isaac Kumnipa, the District Police Commander, corroborated the story and disclosed that the victim was reported missing but found the next day, May 10.
ASP Kumnipa, however, advised Ghanaians to be vigilant, especially when approached by strangers for assistance since they cannot easily verify their intentions.
