The Central Regional Police has on Wednesday arrested a Nigerian couple suspected of dealing in human parts. They were seen with the bloody human parts at Yamoransa, near Cape Coast in the Central Region.
The human parts, made up of two heads, limbs and other parts, were hidden in the washroom at the home of the couple and were said to have been found in a “Ghana must go” bag, dripping with blood.
The Central Regional Police swooped on the house and arrested the Nigerian couple after a tip-off by a resident in the area.
A large crowd stormed the new ultra-modern Kotokuraba Market Police station in Cape Coast on Thursday to catch a glimpse of the couple, who are the first case to be registered after its inauguration.
Alhaji Alfa Rasheed Bello, 42, believed to be a Spiritualist, and his wife, Fauziatu Bello, 37 are said to be notable figures within Cape Coast and its environs.
Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCOP, Stephen Andoh Kwofie, Central Regional Police Commander said the police had information that all kinds of people, including suspected criminals troop in daily to their house at Amosima near Moree.
He said this prompted the police to mount surveillance on the house and made a sudden swoop last night, leading to the discovery of a container with an offensive stench of which Fauziatu attempted to flush its contents but the police prevented her.
Kwofie said the police was yet to ascertain whether two children found in the house were the couple’s wards.
He said the human parts would be sent for autopsy to identify the victims.
