According to reports by the Daily Graphic, the incident happened on Thursday and resulted in the death of the two children.

The suspect, Abigail Agbubla Tetteh, 28, was arrested by the Tema Police Command to assist in the investigation after she allegedly administered a yet to be determined drug to the children and fled.

The bodies were retrieved in the home of the suspect by the Police on Thursday, July 30, 2020.

The deceased children, a boy, and a girl aged two and eight months respectively were found dead on a bed and locked up in their rooms after residents became suspicious of their whereabouts.

The incident attracted a crowd to the scene where the children laid motionless on their bed wearing only diapers with foam on their lips and nostrils.

The suspect initially fled the scene but was arrested by some residents who handed her to the police.

Naawoo Amerley, a traditional priestess in the area, said the suspect, who had run to her house in the early hours of Thursday, after committing the heinous crime, tried bolting after her deed was uncovered.
