A 29-year-old taxi driver, Franklin Mensah, is currently in police custody over allegations of fatally injuring his girlfriend’s three-and-a-half-year-old daughter in Ashaiman.

The tragic incident occurred on Friday, May 3, 2024, in Ashaiman, as reported by Isabella Gidiglo of Adom News.

Joy James, the girlfriend and a waitress, entrusted her daughter to Mensah’s care on that ill-fated day. Despite the child’s persistent cries to accompany her mother, James declined.

In an attempt to pacify the distraught child, Mensah gave her his mobile phone to play with. However, the child threw the device to the ground, resulting in its destruction.

Enraged by the situation, Mensah allegedly grabbed the toddler, leading to her losing consciousness.

The child was rushed to Tema General Hospital but was declared dead upon arrival.

Upon receiving information from neighbors, Joy reported the incident to the police, which led to Mensah’s arrest.

Mensah was arraigned before the Ashaiman District Court on Monday on charges of murder. He was remanded by the court presided over by His Worship Derrick Parden Eshun and is scheduled to reappear in two weeks.

The investigation into the case is ongoing.
