The Ghana Police Service has announced the arrest of one Sherina Mohammed, the sorcerer who masterminded the lynching of 90-year-old Akua Denteh at Kafaba in the Savannah Region.

The 40-year-old woman known as ‘Alhajia’ was arrested by the police at her hideout at Yeji in the Bono East Region.

A statement posted on the Ghana Police Service Facebook page said “She is in police custody.”

The poor old lady was flogged and hit publicly to her death at Kafaba after she was accused of being a witch.

The arrest of the soothsayer comes barely 24 hours after a court in Bole remanded Latifa Bumaye, one of the women captured in a viral video flogging the late old woman into police custody.
