The Inspector General of Police James Oppong-Boanuh has directed the central regional police commander to investigate a police officer, Superintendent Robert Kobil, accused by chiefs and residents of Gomoa Famomaye of exhuming and bolting with over 10 dead bodies from the cemetary in the area.

At a Press Conference organized by the angry Chiefs and residents of Gomoa Fawomaye in the Gomoa West, where the incident took place, the Odikro of the area, Nana Okofo Kwakye Abeka Acquah III, said the suspect, who is not from the community in the company of some thugs invaded the Cemetery, demolished and defaced it day after the chiefs turned down his request to use that piece of land for a project.
