Former Education Minister, Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang has joined her voice to condemn the lynching and eventual death of the 90-year-old-woman accused of witchcraft at Kafaba of the Savanna Region.

Describing the act as despicable and barbaric, the now running mate of John Mahama, expressed sadness about the incident.

“My attention has been drawn to the most despicable act of lynching of a 90-year-old-woman at Kafaba in the East Gonja Municipality of the Savanna Region. I condemn in the strongest terms this barbaric act which has left me, like many I can imagine, deeply sad, indeed”, she posted on Facebook.
Prof Opoku-Agyemang noted that, “the elderly in our society rather deserve our love and protection, not this level of unspeakable cruelty. Old age cannot be synonymous to witchcraft.”
While calling for a fair and gender sensitive society, she expressed commitment to educating the public on the matter to forestall future occurrences.
She also urged the security force to swiftly investigate and bring the culprits to book.
