Mother Of Four Kills Her Eight-Year Old Child

A 38-year-old Mother, Larteley Mensah, has beaten her eight-year-old daughter, Tani Sanni to death.

Vanguard reports that the Mother of Four has been arrested and her case is currently being prepared for the court.

Mensah reportedly beat her daughter to death at their Accra home in Ghana because she failed to cover up her vomit with sand as she had been instructed to do.

The mother of four was said to have sought help of two people to bury the body secretly at Lavender Hill which is an area in Jamestown situated in close proximity to where liquid waste is disposed into the sea and notorious for its stench.

According to Adomonline, the eight-year-old had been battling with a  chronic skin disease.

Tani Sanni had been staying with her dad following the separation of her parents, however, due to the deterioration of her chronic skin disease, the father brought her to her mother for proper care.

Police have mounted a fierce search for Mensah’s accomplices.

Briefing the media, the Korle Bu District Police Commander, DSP Theophilus Esilfie, said Mensah’s accomplices, identified as Adorkor and Ebenezer Annor, Larteley’s boyfriend, are on the run.

Police say they will ensure that the law takes its proper course.
