How Menstruation Saved Kidnapped 15-Year-Old Girl From Being Used For Money Rituals

A 15-year-old girl has narrated how her menstruation saved her from being used for ritual purpose by unknown assailants in the Wassa Amenfi East District of the Western Region in Ghana. Narrating the incident, the girl’s mother, Madam Esther Ankomah, told the media on Friday that her daughter was kidnapped by unknown people on Monday, May 9, at Wassa Akropong around 1700 hours when she was attending choir meeting.

She revealed that the daughter told her that when the assailants were undressing her, they noticed that she was in her menstrual period, therefore, the fetish priest told them she was not suitable for the rituals.

She said the kidnappers then blind-folded her with black handkerchief and left her at a nearby school at Wassa Akropong on Tuesday, May 10 and called her parents to come for her using the victim’s phone.

Speaking about the matter, District Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Isaac Kumnipa, said: “In this case, we cannot compel her to go to hospital because that’s her human rights, therefore the Police cannot ascertain the truth in the reported kidnap,” he stated.

He advised Ghanaians to be vigilant when approached by strangers and call for assistance when needed.
