The Adentan Magistrate court presided over by her lordship Justice Linda Amissah has sentenced a 39-year-old mother to three months in prison with hard labour for subjecting her three-year-old daughter to various forms of physical torture over claims that she is a witch.

Aunty Esi who showed no signs of remorse for her conduct, was charged for physical abuse contrary to the domestic violence act.

She was also fined an amount of GH¢600 with a strict warning to distance herself from her daughter after jail.

The inhumane act of Aunty Esi was brought to the fore by Journalist Kwaku Stephen who went undercover to expose the ill-treatment meted out to the poor girl for months.

However, the Minister for Gender Children and social protection, Cynthia Morrison has cautioned parents who abuse their children will face the law.
