One Washington Ahadzie, whose relative died near the shrine where the rituals were to be performed for the disputed chief, Nyonyo Agboada, confirmed the story to Joy News.
He said that the body of Israel Ahadzie, his relative was not at the mortuary when they went there on Tuesday. He also confirmed that the three other bodies were also not at the mortuary.
Meanwhile, Joy News has learned from a concerned citizen of Anlo that the bodies are in the custody of the Police.
When Joy News contacted the Ghana Police, DSP Kwesi Ofori, Head of the Police Public Relations confirmed the story and said the bodies have been moved down to Accra for autopsy to be conducted on them at the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital on Monday, November 26, 2007.
