Police in Ghana’s capital Accra have arrested a caregiver for allegedly killing an 11-month old baby.

The caregiver, Clara Ayani-Ampah, 54, was arrested after a closed circuit television (CCTV) video exposed her for maltreating and suffocating the baby during feeding.

The baby was pronounced dead at the North Legon Hospital, near Accra where she was rushed to by managers of the creche.

In the viral video, Clara was captured trying to force porridge in a cup into the victim’s mouth, while holding the baby’s hands tightly behind her.

She pushed the baby’s head into the cup in an attempt to get the little girl to drink the porridge, while the helpless baby, who appeared to be suffocating, screamed and threw her legs into the air ferociously.
