A mentally challenged woman on a rampage is reported to have killed a young man believed to be in his early 20s at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange in Accra, Monday evening.
The deranged woman is said to have hit the head of the deceased with a huge stone, opening a deep cut on the head and sending him to the ground with blood oozing from his head leading to his head.
The victim died a few minutes after the attack. It is not clear what provoked the attack.
An eyewitness, Musah said the mentally challenged woman had been on the rampage since morning attacking passersby, and had smashed over 5 cars that drove past her.
“She struggled with the boy under the Interchange and succeeded in crushing him on the ground. She then picked a big stone and crushed the boy’s head with it killing him in the process. We also tried to kill her, but the police arrived timely and stopped us, and took her from us.
When the woman was vandalizing the cars in the morning, the Police stationed beneath the interchange became aware of her actions but they failed to take any action to stop her from attacking people. Now that she’s killed someone and we also wanted to kill her, the police have rather stepped in and saved her. That is so unfair on the part of the police,” he said.
The body of the deceased has been conveyed to the morgue by officers of the National Ambulance Service. It is unknown where the Police have taken the suspect mentally challenged woman.
