The victim was butchered by the said man, sustaining severe cutlass wounds on her neck, chest and arms.

Accra-based Citi FM reports that the suspect, Wisdom Akude, 27, was earlier seen wandering on the field before the attack.

After hacking down the pupil, the suspect tried to flee the scene but was apprehended and handed over to the police.

The victim bled profusely after the attack and finally gave up the ghost upon arrival at the St Margarete Marquant Catholic Hospital, where she was sent for treatment.
