Wa killings: More dead bodies in the bushes

The leader of the Youth group leading the search team for the dead bodies in the Wa killings fears there could be more buried dead bodies in the bush where one body was retrieved on Sunday.

Suphan Iddrisu on Sunday led a search team that discovered the mutilated body of one of the murdered private security men.

Speaking on Top Story, Monday, he noted that during their search in the bushes, they found some other body parts which they suspect could be the body parts of another person.

“The body parts that we found, we asked the police to check whether those parts were intact or otherwise but our checks prove that those human parts that we saw were intact in the person that we saw yesterday so we are thinking that that was another person that has been buried there or taken away.”

“Yesterday’s incident started the same way, we went inside the bush and we were able to find traces that end up leading us to where they buried one of the men.

“So we are thinking that the whole issue or their operation was bound around that point that is why we are continuously moving around the bushes,” he said.

The Police on Sunday, September 18, retrieved the body of one of the murdered persons who was allegedly killed Friday, September 16.

The body of the 58-year-old security man was found in a shallow grave on the outskirts of Wa on Sunday, September 18.

A local search team informed the police.

Meanwhile, the Police have arrested one person believed to be the prime suspect behind the Wa murder case.

Suspect Kankani Adongo was arrested on September 19, at Bamahu, a suburb of Wa after extensive collaboration between the Police and community search parties.

The suspect is in custody and will be arraigned before the court to face justice.

“We got to a point and identified some items we suspected to be human parts. We moved on to an uncompleted building, and we also found some strange materials there too,” a member of the local search team said.

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) earlier today was in Wa to get a first-hand update on the death of some private security officers.

During his visit, the IGP assured the residents of Wa that the perpetrators will face justice.

“We wish to assure residents of the Wa Municipality and its environs that the special intelligence and investigation teams will continue to work around the clock with assistance from the affected communities to bring the perpetrators to face justice,” the Police said.
