Ear-chopping shock Muslim girl

Ghana, May 31: A 19-year-old former student of the Wa T.I Ahmadiyya Senior High School woke Tuesday morning without her ears – both had been chopped off.

Amina Karim Donlaa woke up Tuesday morning and was shocked by her blood soaked dresses.

Flummoxed by the situation she shouted for help and neighbours came to the rescue.

A tearful Amina, speaking to Joy FM Correspondent Rafiq Salaam from her hospital bed at the Wa government hospital, said she didn’t know what was happening to her until her neighbours discovered the pinna of her two ears were all gone. The veil she used to cover her hair was still intact and fell off only after the neighbours lifted her, and only then did they realize she had had both ears chopped off.

She told Rafik she had a nightmare and felt that the main gate to her room had been opened and scrambled to get out of bed. In a very confused state, she felt wet and discovered she was soaked in blood and called for help.

She doesn’t remember anything happening to her during the night.

No single blood stain, said Rafiq, was found on her bed.

Her bloodstained cover cloth was however found in the bathroom giving an indication that the incident may have taken place there.

Residents say they have been jolted by the mysterious incident and want security presence in the vicinity.

Amina is the daughter of the Wa East Constituency Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Alhaji Abdul-Karim Donlaa.
