Girl, 14yrs hands slashed for Abandoning Granny at church

A 14-year -old pupil of Ho-Bankoe Roman Catholic (R.C) Girls Basic School in the Volta region, had her hands alleged slashed for abandoning her weak grandmother at church on Sunday.
She was allegedly given deep cuts on her right and left wrists and due to the cuts, the girl could not sweep or write at school, which drew the attention of schools authorities to her.
She told the authorities that her aunt lashed her and later used a sharp metal to cut her hands.
The girl, who appeared to be in pains, told the GNA that she left the church to look for empty cartons for a school project and got home late.
Ms Mary Constance Agbo, the Headmistress of the School, said the girl could not write due to the depth of the cuts and directed that a member of staff took her to the Hospital.
Mr Edwin Gamadeku, the Volta Regional Manager of the Department of Children, described the act as cruel and said his outfit would invite the girl’s mother for some interactions.
Madam Akua Kwame, the grandmother of the girl who came to the School in tears, denied that a sharp metal was used on the girl.
She complained about the incessant insolent behaviour of the girl, including going out without permission.
Madam Kwame claimed the girl’s parents abandoned her since childhood and she was fed up with her insolent behaviour.
The girl’s aunt who was alleged to have slashed her could not be reached either by the School authorities or the GNA.
