Briefing the media, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, COP Ken Yeboah, said the two had approached one Sheikh Alhaji Mohammed Maaye, a spiritualist in Suame, to sell human parts to him at the cost of GHC2,500.

“The spiritualist then informed police. Police then armed with this information proceeded to the residence of the spiritualist located at Suame Zongo and arrested the suspects with the fresh head, which was concealed in a black polythene bag,” he said.

According to him, the suspects later led police to retrieve the headless body of the deceased at the outskirt of Ampabame near Sokoban in an uncompleted building.

“When the headless body of the boy was found, it was noticed that the deceased both hands had been cut off," COP Ken Yeboah said.
