A 32-year-old woman is in the grip of the Kwabenya Police for allegedly beating her 11-year-old son to death last Saturday.The suspect, Rosina Sam, who owns a confectionery shop at Kwabenya, is said to have got angry with her son for losing GH¢120.

 

The victim, Andrew Sam, a Primary Four pupil of the C&J Montessori at Kotobabi in Accra, was sent by his mother to buy mobile phone recharge cards worth GH¢120 for her shop but he returned to report to her that the money had got missing.

 

Missing money

 

According to the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Accra Regional Police Command, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Mrs Effia Tenge, Rosina, who became angry with her son, allegedly dragged him to her room, which was close to the shop, locked him up there and beat him mercilessly.

 

After beating Andrew, the eldest of her three children, Rosina left for her shop to continue with her trading activities.

 

After a while, Andrew is said to have called his mother to come to his aid because he was getting cold, but angry Rosina asked him to shut up.

 

Andrew is said to have called out to his mother again because the cold was becoming severe, but Rosina asked him to cover himself with some clothes.

 

According to the police, Rosina did not return home until 9:30 p.m. when she closed from her shop.

 

When she entered her room, she found Andrew lying down and tried to wake him up but he did not respond.

 

 

 

Some neighbours who went to the scene reported the incident to the police, leading to Rosina’s arrest about 11 p.m.

 

However, when the police got to the house, Andrew’s father, identified as Mr Amos Sam, had taken the body to the La Hospital mortuary.

 

But the police transfered the body to the Police Hospital mortuary for autopsy.

 

When the Kwabenya Police, as part of their investigations, questioned Rosina, she claimed she had used her hand to beat her son, but some neighbours suspected that she might have used an object to punish him.
