Police in the Ashanti Region have arrested two suspects who attempted selling humans heads to a spiritualist at Barekese in the Atwima Nwabiagya District.
The suspects: Akwasi Adu, 18; Attah Kanea, 20, were said to have come to one Mallam Baba at Barekese on Sunday, 21 January, 2018 around 9:30 pm to sell the head to him, but were arrested.
The Mallam, who feigned interest in buying the human head, asked the suspects to wait for him at his residence while he fetched the money outside to pay for the transaction.
He returned home with police officers who arrested the suspects.
The assembly member for Barekese Electoral Area, Prince Anane Amoateng, who confirmed the arrest to Adehye FM’s Elisha Adarkwah, said the suspects named eight accomplices as the real owners of the decapitated head.
The police has launched a manhunt for the fugitive accomplices.
The two suspects are currently in the custody of the Suame Divisional Police Command.
