Ghana Police To Embark On Mass Burial For 200 Unidentified Dead Bodies
The Ghana Police Service (GPS) says it will be embarking on a mass burial for about two hundred (200) unidentified and unclaimed bodies as part of routine measures to decongest the hospital's mortuary.
In a communique said by the Head of Public Affairs, DSP Yaw Nketia-Yeboah, it said "These unidentified and unclaimed dead bodies are made up of mostly paupers, unknown former patients, abandoned dead bodies, unidentified accident and crime victims"
The statement also called on the general public to contact the pathology department of the Police Service for identification of the persons who might have not been seen for some time as part of the search.
It added that it will avert a situation whereby such bodies are added to those earmarked for the mass burial.
