“I killed her because her father confessed of killing my two kids using witch craft” Accused.
By Isatu Kamara in Kambia
Elizabeth Kamara a five-year-old girl child has been brutally murdered by her uncle. The incident occurred on Saturday at Senthai village, Magbema chiefdom, Kambia district, Northern Sierra Leone.
According to the accused Adikali Sallieu Kamara, his wife has given birth twice, but they lost both kids while his brother’s kids including the deceased were alive. Later on, he said, our father got sick and we had to consult a traditional healer to know the cause of the sickness of the old man. During that process, the traditional healer apparently made the girl’s father Hassan Sallieu Kamara (theaccused’s brother) confessed that he was responsible for the death of his two kids. I became angry seeing my brother’s kids alive while my own kids are all dead, he said.
“I met the kid playing outside, called her inside the house, locked the door and chopped her into pieces. I did this out of revenge because the traditional healer made her father confessed of eating my two kids through witchcraft. That’s why I killed her”, Kamara told Mountain Waves Blog. The father of the child is still in shock and is unable to talk to our reporter.
The accused was arrested on Saturday while trying to flee the district and in now in police custody awaiting his first court appearance on Monday September 7th in Kambia town.
