A WOMAN in her early 50’s has been killed by her own son, who eye witnesses claimed was influenced by an evil spirit.
Madam Akosua Yeboah, according to reports, was hit with a sharp metal object by Atta Kofi, her biological son, in the early hours of Wednesday, killing her instantly.
The unexpected incident reportedly happened at Amoaman, a community in the Atwima Nwabiagya District. Madam Akosua, who suffered a deep cut in the head, collapsed and bled until she died.
The police, amidst difficulty, had been able to arrest Atta Kofi, who initially resisted arrest; eye witnesses had informed the paper.
According to them, Atta Kofi recently started behaving as if he was suffering from a mental disorder, but nobody expected that he could kill his own mother.
They said they strongly suspected that Atta was under the influence of some strange spirits.
The body of the deceased had since been deposited at the mortuary.
