C/R: Pupil, 10, escapes assassination attempt in Mankessim after testifying in court

A ten-year-old class four pupil (name withheld) of the Mankessim Anglican School in the Central Region, has narrowly escaped assassination after appearing before the Mankessim District Court as witness to a theft case.

The victim had testified before the court in a case involving a guy named, Majeed who she and her friends allegedly spotted stealing a tricycle (Aboboyaa) announced in the area to have been missing for days.

The little girl on Monday around 8:30am while in school, reported of headache and asked permission from her teacher to go home for medication. But on her way, she got attacked by three assailants in facemask.

The assailants tried to harm her after tying her mouth and hands in an uncompleted building. But in an attempt to tie her legs, they noticed that some persons were coming towards the building, hence they fled to avoid being noticed.

The rescued victim was found in her school uniform, had her mouth sealed with a handkerchief and hands tied with a lemon coloured rope.

Beatrice Daamoah, mother of the victim in an interview said she had on several occasions spotted the accused thief pointing her daughter to his friends as the girl who testified against him in court.

She added that fearing that her daughter’s life was in danger, she reported the matter to the CID officer handling the case, who later called the suspect to order, but the latter continued to intimidate her daughter on several times.

The case has been reported to the Mankessim Police Command which has commenced investigation.
