A police officer has reportedly exhumed about 10 bodies from the Gomoa Fawomaye Cemetery and bolted with them.
It is currently unclear where he took the bodies but the police officer identified as Superintendent Robert Cobby from Gomoa Kyiren has confirmed the suspicions.
In his defense, Superintendent Robert Cobby said the Chiefs and Elders of the Community don’t accord with him with respect and asked them to take the matter to the court.
According to the Odikro of the area, Nana Okofo Kwakye Abeka Acquah III said the police officer who is not from their community came to them and informed them that he wanted the land for a project.
But the Chiefs told the Police Officer that the land in question was a cemetery and was not available.
The Chiefs noticed the next day that the police officer and some thugs had invaded the Cemetery, demolished and defaced it.
Inspections made by the Chiefs, Elders, residents, and media indicated that over 10 dead bodies and skeletons were missing, allegedly stolen by the police officer.
The Chiefs and Elders in the area exhumed all the graves and found out that the bodies of some people who died in an accident were missing.
Families whose dead relatives have been stolen by the police officer have expressed their anger at the situation in an interview with EIB Network’s Yaw Boagyan.
