The Volta Regional Police Command has arrested two persons over possession of human parts.

The two are 36-year-old Kente weaver, Eklu Havor and Emmanuel Opoku, a 36-year-old fetish priest.

Speaking to the media, the Volta Regional Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Nana Asomah Hinneh, said the fetish priest, Opoku, on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, reported to the police at Kponvie barrier on the Tsito-Asikuma road, that Eklu had brought him the body parts of an old lady to be used for money ritual.

The police commander said that Eklu, upon arrest, confessed to killing an 80-year-old woman but said that it was on the request of the fetish priest, who promised to pay him an amount of Gh¢50, 000.

He said that Eklu led the police to exhume the body of the old lady, which he buried in a shallow grave in a community called Dabodabo, on the road to Anum in the Eastern region.

The fetish priest and the murder suspect have since been detained to assist in further investigations.

Meanwhile, the body together with the dismembered parts have been preserved at the morgue of the Regional Hospital in Ho.
