90-year-old woman beaten to death for being a witch

A woman believed to be in her 90s have been beaten to death over allegations that she’s a witch.

The woman is said to be declared a witch by a soothsayer after which some women in the community took it upon themselves to beat her to death.

The gruesome lynching and murder is said to have occurred at Kafaba in the East Gonja Municipality of the Savannah region.

In the video, the old woman who laid helpless on the floor was begging that she’s not a witch but the two hot-headed women who carried out the beatings refused to hear her out.

It is unclear what prompted the supposed soothsayer to accuse the old woman of witchcraft and her subsequent lynching but scenes in the video can only be described as barbaric.

The disturbing video has younger women, slapping, whipping and hitting the old woman’s head with a heavy item, with the community members cheering them on.

The video appeared to have incensed social media users who have called on the police to fish them out and prosecute them.
