A 90-year-old woman beaten to death for being a witch

An old woman believed to be in her late 90’s has been beaten to death after a soothsayer claimed she was a witch.

Details remain scanty at this point but the gruesome lynching and murder is said to have occurred at Kafaba in the East Gonja Municipality of the Savannah region.

In a disturbing video that is fast going viral sighted by myaimreport.com on 3fm’s twitter page, the old woman, who could be heard clearly refuting allegations that she is a witch, was pushed down by one of the women, and beaten mercilessly.

It is unclear what prompted the supposed soothsayer to accuse the old woman of witchcraft and her subsequent lynching but scenes in the video can only be described as barbaric.

The disturbing video has young women, slapping, whipping and hitting the old woman’s head with various items, with the community members cheering them on.

The video appeared to have incensed social media users who have called on the police to fish them out and prosecute them.
