A circuit court at Nkawie in the Ashanti Region on Wednesday, June 16 remanded the three suspects who unlawfully possessed human body parts and offered same for sale.
This was after prosecutors prayed the court for more time to conclude investigations, police at Abuakwa Division told dailymailgh.com.
The court presided over by His Honour Johnson Michael Abbey adjourned the case to June 30 for a second hearing.
The suspects have been named as Kwaku Agyapong, 65; Isaac Adoma, 25 and 46-year-old Kofi Anane Konye.
Kofi Agyapong, who police named as the key suspect, had offered to sell the body parts for ¢30,000, a police statement said.
Following a tip-off, police investigators who feigned interest agreed to meet the suspects at a [local hotel] near Abuakwa Manhyia in Kumasi to have the body parts delivered.
Agyapong, who appeared suspicious sent Anane Konye and Isaac Adoma to the location who were arrested by the police on June 10, 2021, with the human remains retrieved as exhibits, the police said.
“Subsequently, policemen were despatched in the night with suspect Anane Kofi Konye to Adamsu where suspect Kwaku Agyapong was arrested and brought to Abuakwa where he was detained with the two other suspects”, the police said in a statement.
“The exhibits including the two human skeleton parts are kept for evidential purposes”, the statement noted.
