Pastor, three others arrested for attempted grave robbery
A pastor and three others have been arrested at Abura Batayaa in the
Abura Asebu Kwamankese District of the Central Region for attempting to loot a grave.
Speaking to Kasapa FM News’ Yaw Boagyan, the Assembly Member for the area,
Godlove Blankson, said the suspects were arrested at midnight on Tuesday,
March 30 with cutlasses, schnapps, shovels, eggs, boiled yam, pick-axe
amongst others at a nearby cemetery.
The Assemblyman added that they suspect those arrested came to the
area to loot the grave and take away human skeletons as directions
given to them by their spiritual fathers. He added that the suspects
were probably going to use the human skeletons for money rituals.
He, however, revealed that the suspects claimed that there’s gold in
the land and they were there to dig it up. The Assemblyman disclosed
that many graves in the area have been looted in the past and
suspected the group of committing those acts.
