The Bole Magistrate Court has remanded into prison custody seven suspects who appeared before the court over the lynching of a 90-year-old woman, Akua Denteh at Kafaba after accusing her of witchcraft.

The suspects were initially discharged of their former charges but were re-arrested immediately and committed to prison custody.

The Northern Regional State Attorney, Salia Abdul Quddus in an interaction with the media after the suspects were rearrested explained that, the discharge and re-arrest the suspects paves the way for the docket to be forwarded to the Attorney General’s Department for study and advice.

“What we can assure them of, is an expeditious and professional trial, that we will prosecute this matter to the best of our ability to ensure that justice is done for all persons,” he assured.

The suspects are facing murder charges and are expected to appear at the Tamale High Court on September 18.
