A Ghanaian woman has been arrested for implanting ginger in her son’s anus as a form of punishment for messing up in school.
Law enforcement revealed that the child’s mother subjected him to a particularly embarrassing and painful method of corporal punishment, according to reports. The woman identified as Aba Hagan, 40, was detained on Thursday in Manchester and charged with third-degree assault, cruelty to persons, disorderly conduct and impairing the morals of/or endangering a child. Police officers were sent to a Rachel Road apartment at roughly 8 p.m. on a reported domestic dispute. On scene, they discovered a naked boy, whose age was omitted from the police report, who said Hagan had shoved ginger in his anus, police stated.
The report says, Hagan denied doing anything initially, though said later that her son “had messed up in school and she punished him.” “Aba stated she had taken a piece of ginger and put it into (the victim’s) anus,” reads the report. “I asked why she would do this,” Officer Daniel Roberts wrote, “and she stated this was a common punishment in her home country of Ghana, Africa.” EMT workers evaluated the child and transported him to Manchester Memorial Hospital. A report of suspected neglect or child abuse was forwarded to the state Department of Children and Families, wrote Daniels.
Tourists, need to be cautious in Ghana. They are frequently the target of criminal elements, various who maneuver around tourist locations. Travelers, specifically women on their own, are the target of rapacious crimes such as bag snatching, petty theft, pick-pocketing and muggings—oh, and ginger in your anus.
