Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, in a new documentary reveals how inmates of the Echoing Hills Village, a non-governmental organisation at Madina, are subjected to inhumane conditions.
Excerpts of the yet to be released documentary shows how in one instance, a man of God forcibly lets a child at the orphanage eat his own excreta.
Titled “Torture Home… When a man of God abuses children”, the documentary also reveals how the home, under the leadership of Rev Lawrence Lamina, sells donations meant for the upkeep of the home.
Anas in a Facebook post on Monday said “When a man of God pulls a dagger and threatens to kill a child in his orphanage for committing a ‘crime’, he naturally courts society’s wrath and outright condemnation.”
“It is shocking to watch the video, yet it is gratifying that a place meant for the protection of children in difficult circumstances but turned into a special prison for their torture has finally been exposed,” he added.
The documentary will be premiered on Friday, June 28.
