A pastor and three others have been arrested by the police for allegedly attempting to loot a grave for ritual purposes at Abura Aseebu Kwamankesse in the Central Region of Ghana.
In an interaction with the media shortly after the arrest, assemblyman for the area, Godlove Blankson said the suspects were arrested at midnight of Thursday having in their possession cutlasses, shovels, schnapps, eggs, boiled yams etc.
The four were allegedly in a move to dig out a human body at a cemetery in the vicinity.
The ritual direction was reportedly given to them by a Mallam who said he ‘wanted to help the pastor’.
According to the assemblyman, such acts have been ongoing in the community for sometime now, taunting residents.
The suspects have been sent to the Abura Dunkwa Police Station to assist in further investigation.
