A man has been suspected of secretly burying a five-year-old boy in Kasoa in the Central Region after the boy fell in his uncovered pit.

A couple had before then reported of their missing child, whose name was given as Nana Yaw.

Residents, however, said that they saw a man pulling a lifeless body from the pit Monday morning.

The man has surprisingly been left to walk free, as reports say the parents of the deceased refused to report the matter to the police but sought an agreement with the suspect.
