26-Year-Old Mother On The Run


A loving mother’s desire to stop her 6-year-old daughter from sucking her fingers has landed her on the wrong side of the law.

A 26-year-old Alima Abass has been declared wanted by the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service at Kenken, a suburb of Techiman in the Brong Ahafo region. Her offence: burning the fingers of her 6-year-old daughter, Samzia Abass.

According to reports Alima “burned her daughter’s fingers after several cautions to stop sucking them” were ignored by the little girl..

A furious Alima forced her daughter’s fingers into a fire to teach her a lesson.

Samzia Abass’s fingers are now swollen with severe burns to the extent that she struggles to write.

Father of the victim, Ibrahim Abass described the situation as “very unfortunate.”
