The Tema Police have denied media reports that an unidentified man was arrested Sunday carrying a severed human head at the Greater Accra campaign launch of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
It was reported that an unidentified man was arrested by the Tema Police for allegedly carrying to the campaign grounds, a severed head of a lady.
According to the reports, the man was nearly lynched by angry party supporters who saw him carrying the severed head in a polythene bag at the campaign grounds.
It took the intervention of the men and women in black uniform to rescue him.
The reports indicated that the man was whisked to the Community 1 Police Station where he is currently assisting with investigations.
But Tema Regional Police Public Officer, ASP Juliana Obeng in an interview on Adom FM’s Morning Show “Dwaso Nsem” Monday described the reports as a false alarm.
According to her, the items found in the polythene bag were not a human head as was reported.
She said the bag contained sand and waste after investigations conducted by the police.
“It is just a false alarm. The substance found in the polythene bag was not a human head. It was sand and rubbish” she said.
DSP Juliana Obeng urged the media to be circumspect and crosscheck facts before putting out any information to the public.
