A five-month-old foetus was on Friday morning found dumped in a gutter at Nkoranza near Santasi in the Atwima Kwanwoma district of the Ashanti Region.

William Acheampong, an Assembly member of the Ampabame told Silver News Akwadaa Nyame that police have begun investigations to identify who dumped the foetus in the gutter.

“Today about 8:30am, we discovered that a foetus had been dumped into a gutter. So I quickly informed my unit committee members and we hurriedly informed the police. We have also intensified investigations in this area as we hunt for the one who committed this act”, he said.

The lifeless body has since been buried after the the chiefs in the area performed some libation.

This unfortunate incident comes on the back of rising cases of adolescent pregnancies in the Ashanti Region.

Statistics from the Ashanti Regional Health Directorate reveal that some 2,086 adolescent abortions were recorded in 2016 out of a total 18,461 adolescent pregnancies in the Region.
