Three Policemen Interdicted Over Man’s Death, Burial


The Ghana Police Service has interdicted three policemen for their alleged involvement in the death and secret burial of a 48-year-old man, Abu Bukari Bahala, at Seikwa in the Tain District in the Bono Region.

In addition, the Bono Regional Police Command is currently searching for a man identified as the Akyeamehene of the Seikwa Traditional Area, Opanin Asuman, who is suspected to have assisted the policemen to bury Bahala.


The three policemen, all stationed at the Seikwa Police Station, are Chief Inspector Eric Aforo, General Corporal William Apussungi and General Constable Ebenezer Akuffo.

According to the police, they had been interdicted following ongoing investigations into the unfortunate incident.

The three policemen and two security men of the Nkoranman Rural Bank — Rubin Obeng and Aaron Abey — are alleged to have brutalised Bahala to death and buried him secretly at night to cover their crime.

Police briefing


The Bono Regional Crime Officer, Superintendent Kennedy Adusei, who confirmed the incident to newsmen, said the three policemen and the other people named in the incident had been invited to assist the police in their investigations.

“As part of measures by our superiors, and to avoid interference by the policemen, they have been asked to step aside as part of measures put in place to deal with the matter," he said.

Supt Adusei explained that the initial report was that on Friday, April 16, 2021, the Manager of the Nkoranman Rural Bank, Mr Emmanuel Ofori, reported to the police that Bahala, a lunatic in the Seikwa community, had smashed the windscreen of his vehicle, with registration number AS 2000- X.


Supt Adusei said police investigations revealed that after Bahala had smashed the windscreen of the said vehicle, Obeng and Abey, along with others, attacked and beat him mercilessly, before sending him to the police station.

He said at the police station, Bahala was violent, compelling the policemen to push him to the compound of the rented police quarters, where they managed to handcuff him.


Supt Adusei said later, the police realised that the deceased had become weak and was rushed to the Seikwa Health Centre for treatment but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police best practices

He said going by best practices, Chief Inspector Aforo should have known better by preserving the body at the mortuary for autopsy.

“When such things happen, a policeman is supposed to send the body to the mortuary for preservation and autopsy, but the opposite happened,” Supt Adusei stated.

He said Chief Inspector Aforo explained that Opanin Asuman, together with some boys, had assisted him to bury the deceased.

Supt Adusei said when rumours went round in the community about the incident, the culprits realised their mistake, exhumed the body and sent it to the mortuary.

He said all those involved in the case or contributed to the crime had been sent to the Sunyani Police Headquarters for interrogation, explaining that investigations were ongoing.

Supt Adusei assured the family of the deceased that everything possible would be done to ensure justice for the deceased.

Why Being Single May Be Better Than Being in a Relationship

Society has a lot of stereotypes and prejudices about love. As a result people often feel pressured to stay in a relationship, even if they aren’t satisfied with it, and feel guilty for being single. But don’t forget that you can be alone but not lonely. Being in a committed relationship with yourself actually has many benefits. We at TRIG are sure that one of the most important relationships you will ever have is with yourself, and sometimes loneliness is the best option. 1. We are often guilty of singlism.

See Yam Tubers That Look Like Human Body Parts

Farming as we all know is done by so many people for the purpose of producing for their personal consumption or for commercial purposes. Different types of crops have their different ways of being planted and also bear their produce in different ways as well. For those that have engaged in farming one way or the other, or even those that go to the market to make purchases, you will agree with me that root and tuber crops such as yam, potatoes, cocoyam, Cassava etc have a form in which they appear when uprooted or harvested from the ground, some are straight while some have different indefinite shapes of different sizes. But something got me amazed, I came across these strangely shaped and configured yam tubers harvested by a Nigerian Farmer. The two pictures above illustrates the general shape and physical appearance of yam tubers. The pictures below are in no way like the ones above. In fact, the physical appearance of the below images is one that is familiar to most of us. As can be
