Three persons caught with human parts at Abuom near Sankore in the Asunafo South District of the Ahafo Region have been arrested by the Kukuom Police.
Thirty-five-year-old Peter Foh, Yaw Yeridie, 31, and Berko Isaac, 30, were arrested on Sunday evening, the District Police Commander, DSP Lawrence Adomberi confirmed.
He said the suspects dug up a female grave at the Aboum Presbyterian Cemetery at about 11:pm on the fateful day they were arrested.
“We had information that two people were found with a box containing human parts and so they were arrested and sent to the Abuom Police Station but the people were trooping in to lynch them,” he said.
DSP Adomberi said he quickly asked his patrolmen to move in and rescue them so they were rescued and sent them to the police station.
Later on Monday, the police arranged with the suspect to arrest the one who sent them to pick up the body parts.
“He was also arrested and the three of them are now in custody pending investigations.
“My information is that the body parts were exhumed at Abuom Presbyterian Cemetery and for now we are told they are ritualists,” DSP Adomberi added.
DSP Adomberi assured that the suspects would be put before court soon as reported by the Daily Graphic.
