Severed human heads including one belonging to a 13-year-old boy had been found in a fridge at the home of an Ex-Ghanian footballer.
Richard Gyamfi, 28, a former Ghanaian footballer player later turned sporting commentator, has been arrested after the boy’s father forced his way into his home and discover the horrific sight in a locked room.
Police were then called and recovered severed limbs and heads from his fridge in Ghana’s Sunyani Municipality on Sunday (22nd August).
Local news site Kanyi Daily reports Thomas Agyei, age not stated, confronted Gyamfi accusing him of luring his 13-year-old son, Louis Agyemang Junior, into his house from a local park.
Gyamfi told the concerned father that he had never seen his son and had nothing to do with his disappearance.
However, one of Louis’ friends assured Thomas Agyei that he had seen Gyamfi taking the missing teen into his house.
Kanyi Daily reports that Thomas Agyei and several locals took the law into their own hands and barged into the former National Division player’s home.
Initially, they didn’t find anything out of the ordinary until they came across a locked door which they demanded Gyamfi open.
Gyamfi refused, claiming he had lost the key, the group led by the missing boy’s father kicked down the door and found Louis’ dead body on the floor with his head missing.
The police were called to the scene where they discovered that apart from the 13-year-old there were two other severed heads and countless human body parts stuffed in the fridge.
The identities of the other victims have not yet been made public.
Alexander Kwaku Obeng, The Director of Public Affairs for the Ghana Police Service, told local media: “The remains are being moved to the Ghana Police Service hospital morgue in Accra for forensic analysis to be done to support the investigation.”
Due to the shocking nature of the crime, Obeng added that psychiatric support has been made available to the families of the victims, members of the community and police officers involved in the case.
The investigation is ongoing and the suspect is currently being held in detention.
