Some traders at the Adabraka Market in Accra on Wednesday dragged a woman in her early forties to the Adabraka Police Station, over suspicions that she was selling human parts as meat to unsuspecting consumers.
The woman, according to the market women, was carrying a tray with some pieces of meat, and was moving strangely at the market. The market women say all attempts to get her to disclose the source and the type of meat she was carrying proved futile.
One of the market women at the Adabraka Market told Citi News that the lady “was selling the meat,” and when “we queried her to find out what she was selling she refused to talk.” “She was moving about with the meat in a broken tray.
We asked her the cost of the meat but she refused to answer, so what else can we think of? That is why we marched her to the Police station. The meat looked like beef,” she added. Another market woman said, they were told that the strange meat, was meant “for ritual and was given to her by her pastor.”
“If it’s for rituals, she should have sent it to the person who gave her this weird meat.
She refused to answer and she was behaving strangely, we realized it’s human meat.” “According to some of my colleagues, she confessed that it is human meat and that her pastor gave it to her to perform some rituals.
The women think she cannot perform such ritual at the market so they dragged her to the Police station,” another market woman added.
