Following the lynching of Akua Denteh, a 90-year-old woman in the Gonja East District of the Northern Region, there has been uproar and a call for justice for her gruesome murder.

Akua Denteh was accused of witchcraft by a fetish priest subsequently leading to her lynching by relatives and community members.

On social media, enraged Ghanaians have taken to the hashtag #JusticeForNanabaa to protest her lynching and are calling for swift actions from the government to ensure that the evil doers face the full wrath of the law.

A petition is also being signed on social media to put more pressure on government to see to it that justice is carried out.
