Residents of Akyeremadi, near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, on Thursday morning arrested a woman they said was a flying witch that had crash-landed, according to a report by the Daily Guide.
The residents claimed the woman, 37, who gave her names as Gifty and Afia, fell from the sky at about 3:30am on a tape at a block factory in the area.
Some masons said they had heard a loud noise in the early hours of the morning and had rushed to find out what had happened.
They said they got there only to find a woman in a shiny dress lying on the tape with blood stains on her face.
According to them, the woman quickly ran to hide in the house of one Emmanuel Ofori.
News that a “witch” had been caught attracted many residents who tried to catch a glimpse of her.
