A 25-year-old man has been arrested and taken into custody for allegedly killing a pregnant woman before cutting her stomach open and removing her unborn child.
Godfred Aladago was accused of committing the heinous crime in Atobra in the Ashanti region in Ghana on June 20.
According to reports, 30-year-old Rose Asibi was murdered and had her stomach cut open because of a simple misunderstanding.
Rose’s goat reportedly ate some of Aladago’s produce after trespassing onto his farm.
The farmer was almost lynched by furious members of the community who nearly broke into his prison cell.
The Tepa District Police Commander Superintendent Martin Asenso confirmed the heartbreaking circumstances of the murder.
Speaking to Akoma FM, Superintendent Asenso said: “The suspect earlier came to lodge a complaint that some farmer’s goats had strayed and they had been eating his farm produce, and when he confronted them, they chopped his hand with a machete.”
He also said that some young members of the local community “arrived at the police station and claimed that the suspect had actually killed two women, saying their goat had chewed his maize,” according to The Daily Star.
Reports also say that the 25-year-old farmer allegedly tried to kill the pregnant woman’s 17-year-old in-law but she managed to escape.
“I got wind of the information following a distress call so I rushed to the police to make enquiries,” a neighbor said.
“The suspect was seen with knife wounds and had reported himself to the police. This is barbaric and the man must be brought to justice.”
Aladago was transferred to regional police to prevent furious locals from trying to end his life.
