3 arrested for attempting to sell corpse


The Volta Regional Police have three guys in custody for allegedly murdering a 30-year-old man and attempting to sell his body.

Kalefe Korku, 42, Afedo Kpotor, 21, and Ametoke Sitsofe, 27, allegedly sought a fetish priest in Agbozume and asked for help selling the body of Albert Anyinado, whom they allegedly murdered.

After discussions, the fetish priest informed the police, who pretended to be interested in acquiring the body for 7,000 dollars, and settled on a meeting spot in Agavedzi on Monday morning.

When the suspects saw the police at the meeting site, they dropped the body and ran.

“Police subsequently pursued and arrested all the three suspects in their various houses at Agavedzi, Agbozume, and Adina.”

“The body has been deposited at Ketu South Municipal Hospital morgue awaiting autopsy”, stated a release issued by the Volta Regional Public Affairs Officer,  DSP Effia Tenge. 

The suspects are in police custody assisting with investigations.
