A five-hour operation by security operatives in Ghana has led to the retrieval of two human remains buried on the compound of two spiritualists in the Eastern part of the West African country.

Led by Police Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), COP Isaac Ken Yeboah, the team on Thursday, arrived at the Power Spiritual and Herbal Center located at Adu Kojo in the Asamankese District at about 11am local time to make the shocking discovery.

Two suspects believed to be owners of the facility were arrested during the operation. They have been named as Christian Gameli, popularly known as Power 1, and Famous Adukonu also known as Scorpion.

Police later named the victims as Edward Quartey Papafio aged 64 and one Kwashie Zormelo — who may have been murdered by the suspects for rituals.

“Bones of other unknown corpses were also exhumed at the compound after intense search,” a police statement made available to indicated.

The suspects have since been transported and detained at the CID Headquarters in Accra as police open investigations into the matter.

An autopsy will be conducted by pathologists at the Ghana Police Hospital as part of investigations.

The incident has left residents of Adeiso and its environs in shock. Some of them who rushed to the scene want the suspects to face justice.
