Kwaku Asante, a gardener, has appeared before the Accra Circuit Court for allegedly possessing fresh human parts and a crocodile bile. He is on remand.
The exhibits which were not mentioned were not tendered in court and are being preserved by the police because they would get rotten.
Asante's plea was not taken and he was remanded to reappear on June 22, 2006, by which time police investigations into the case would have been concluded.
According to the facts of the case, as narrated by Police Superintendent Elizabeth Alomatu, the suspect lived at Dome, near Accra while the complainant, a police officer, was stationed at Adabraka in Accra.
She said on May 21, 2006 at about 6.30 p.m., the police officer had a tip-off that Asante had in his possession suspected human parts and a crocodile bile which had been concealed in a black polythene bag.
Supt. Alomatu said the informant told the police officer that Asante was at the O and A Transport yard, near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle.
The police officer, she said, mobilised some men and went to the bus station, where the suspect was arrested.
She said when a search was conducted, the suspected human parts and the crocodile bile were found concealed in the polythene bag. Asante was subsequently arrested.
