Ellian Zumeseh, the offender, is said to have carried out the crime in Mama Lawson, a neighborhood of the Sunyani Municipality in the Bono Region.
The dead remains of the innocent twins were recovered from the well and taken to the mortuary by law enforcement personnel.
“The woman was arrested and taken to the police station. Later, the cops tracked us down and took the infants to the morgue. We will sign paperwork tomorrow [Thursday] so that the remains may be released for burial before they take her to court, they say. She has no issues since she is sane. I’m taken aback by what she’s done “According to citinewsroom.com, Cecilia Dumpaka, a businesswoman whose employee’s daughter is accused of the crime,
Recounting how it all happened, Cecilia said: “I stay at Penkwase, so around 2am today, I had a call from my children who were sleeping at the workplace that the daughter of one of my workers who had given birth to twins had drowned the children in a well. So, I left home around 2am, and when I got here it was true. We called police personnel who stay in the community.”
The incident was confirmed by the Bono Regional Police PRO, ASP Augustine Kingsley Oppong, according to the news website.
“On 24th May, 2022, about 2:00 am, two policemen escorted a woman to the police who is believed to have delivered about three months ago and had dumped her two babies in a well. Due to this Police begun investigations immediately. We sent our men to the place to follow up and help.
“We can confirm that after sending the twins to the Bono Regional Hospital they were confirmed dead on arrival as confirmed by the doctor on duty Dr. Amoako,” the police boss said.
Residents in the town are confused as to what may have pushed the suspect to perform the claimed crime because she was not known to have any mental health concerns before to the occurrence.
Meanwhile, ASP Oppong stated that inquiries into the suspect’s motivation had commenced.
