A mother said to be finding difficulties in raising her two children has allegedly poisoned them at Tema New Town in the Greater Accra Region.
The incident which happened on Thursday has resulted in the death of the two children, reports Graphic Online’s Benjamin Xornam Glover.

The suspect, Abigail Agbubla Tetteh, 28, was arrested by the Tema Police Command to assist in investigation after she allegedly administered a yet to be determined drug to the children and fled.

The bodies were retrieved in the home of the suspect by the Police on Thursday, July 30, 2020.

The deceased children, a boy and a girl aged two and eight months respectively, were found dead on a bed and locked up in their rooms, after residents became suspicious of their whereabouts.

Crowd

The incident attracted a crowd to the scene where the children laid motionless on their bed wearing only diapers with foam on their lips and nostrils.

The suspect initially fled the scene but was arrested by some residents who handed her to the police.
