Police in Tema have opened investigations into circumstances that led to the death of a 10-year old girl.
The deceased Nyamyo Nartey was found dead with her throat slit and several cuts on parts of her body at their house at Adjei Kojo Suncity in the Tema West Municipality.
According to the mother of the deceased, Salomey Terkpertey, she was with her daughter at the shop where she sells food before the incident.
She said her 10-year-old daughter, Nyamyo Nartey, felt sleepy and had to take the lead home.
When she returned home around 10:30 pm, Salomey, found her daughter lying in a pool of blood with her throat slit.
Father of the deceased, Frederick Nartey said he had traveled to Kede in the Eastern Region when he got the news of his daughter’s demise.
He stated that after the CID examined the body, they revealed that Nyamyo had also been stabbed and had other cuts on her body.
Mr. Nartey who rents a room in a compound house said he was surprised no one in the house witnessed the incident.
The tenants are also calling for a deeper investigation to uncover the perpetrators behind the crime. They stated that they are in a state of fear and want the police to get to the root of the issue.
It is still unclear what could have led someone to commit such a crime considering the age of the deceased.
