The Abuakwa Divisional Command of the Ghana Police Service has arrested 3 suspects for unlawful possession of human parts.
The arrest was made on June10, 2021 when the suspects, Kwaku Agyapong, Anane Kofi Konye, and Isaac Adota, offered to sell the human skeletons in their possession for GH¢30, 000.
Anane Kofi Konye and Isaac Adota were earlier arrested at Wadoma Hotel where they were going to sell the skeletons to the supposed buyers who were plain-clothed police men.
Kofi Konye later led the police to Adamsu to arrest Kwaku Agyapong, a 65-year old man who is the architect behind the scheme.
According to ASP Godwin Ahianyo, the Ashanti Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Service, “on June 9, this year, the Abuakwa Command picked up intelligence that Agyapong, a resident of Adamsu in the Bono Region, was in possession of human parts and was looking for a buyer in Kumasi.”
He indicated that the police quickly feigned interest in buying a full human skeleton and arrived at the price of GH¢30, 000 which was supposed to be delivered the following day at Wadoma Hotel and Abuakwa Manhyia.

He further stated that on the day of the delivery, Agyapong did not come himself — he sent the other two accomplices: Konye and Anane to do the delivery.
He said “the two were arrested when they brought the human parts for delivery at the hotel and they led the police to arrest Agyapong later.”
All the three suspects are currently in police custody and are helping with investigations.
