The Foase Police Command is investigating the death of a 25-year-old woman at Dida in the Atwima Kwanwoma District of the Ashanti Region.
Reports indicate that on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, Sabina Badu left her grandmother’s room and retired to bed in her room.
Her grandmother, Akosua Ako did not find her the next day and the family immediately went searching for her.
Sabina Badu’s body was found on the outskirts of the community with some of her body parts missing.
When her family heard that a body had been found, the deceased’s brother, Opoku Kingston went with a group of people to the scene
He told us in an interview: “I rushed to the location at 6:30 in the morning and saw my sister, and she was covered with plantain leaves. At that moment, I wasn’t able to identify the person because I couldn’t see the face, but the police were around, and they asked us to wait for the crime officers before we could get closer to the body. So when the crime scene people came around, they pulled off the leaves, and we went around and saw the body. We saw that her thumb and two other fingers were cut off. The big toe on each foot and one of her breasts were also cut off.”
He added that the police have assured the family that they will continue their investigations and that the family is doing what they can to assist the police in their investigations.
“Fortunately, the police told us they are continuing with their investigations after we went to see them today. They also asked for our assistance to aid in investigations, so we handed over the contacts of some people who were communicating with her within the period to them. They also informed us that they will obtain some documents from the court so that they can get an autopsy from the hospital and after that, they will take some information to Accra, and we can take it from there.”
Police at Foase confirmed the incident and said investigations have duly commenced.
They later conveyed the body to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue.
