Residents of Abesim, a town in the Sunyani Municipality have expressed fear in patronizing local eatery joints popularly called chop bars owing to the prevailing gruesome murders of two teenagers whose bodies were stocked in a fridge by the murderer.
Still traumatized over the news, some residents have said in a new development that they’re frightened of eating at chop bars because they are afraid the meat used in the culinary could be human flesh.
The suspect Richard Appiah after a search in his house by the police was found to be in possession of the bodies of two children, aged 12 and 15.
Pieces of flesh suspected to be human parts were also found stocked in a fridge in his house.
Recall that in an interaction with Luv FM, the mother of Stephen Sarpong, one of the victims, said she believes her son’s death may lead to exposing the suspect’s hidden serial crimes.
“The suspect joined us to search for my son; we never suspected he was the one who had killed him. if it wasn’t for my son’s death; we would never have arrested him because he has killed many people.
“In this room, they found women braziers, school uniforms. Does he sell braziers? So, I believe my son sacrificed his life for this killer to be exposed for the safety of all,” Eunice Yeboah Asuama said.
Abesim, a town almost tied to Sunyani in the Bono Region, has a history of ritual murders.
