October 17, 2022 – Wa: The people of Wa in the Upper East Region were surprised yesterday to discover another dead body. This brings the total to thirteen dead bodies. All victims are male. All bodies have their private parts and hearts carved out. All the diseased were private security personnel.

The member of parliament for Wa  West constituency Peter Lanchenne Toobu who disclosed this in an interview on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo morning show yesterday, said his constituents are living in fear and have set up a community search party to go through the bushes in search of more dead bodies.

”Since in a period of three weeks we can discover thirteen bodies, then there is the possibility that more bodies are displaced in uncompleted and abandoned houses. I therefore charge the state security agencies to mount surveillance in the constituency”, he added.

Similar cases of mutilated bodies have been reported in and around the Ghanaian capital Accra. A prospective nursing trainee was killed and buried in a shallow pit by a pastor and the sub-chief of Mankessim.

Experts believe the deaths could be the result of ritual purposes or organ trafficking.

There has been a rise in cases of organ trafficking across Ghana, Africa and the world. Organ trafficking refers to a range of criminal activities including illegal organ harvesting from a living or dead individual and unlawful sale and transplantation of human organ. The national organ and transplant act of the 1984 defines human organ as the human kidney, liver, heart, lungs, pancreas, bone marrow, cornea, eye, bone and skin or any sub part thereof. Unfortunately these human parts have gained market globally. Most undocumented African migrants are the prime targets of this organized crime. They are promised greener pastures in the Middle East and the Gulf states, which make them victims to this lucrative venture.
