Adenta residents find coffin with human remains

A plot owner at Adenta, near Accra, Kwame has given an account of how he found coffins containing human body parts in a wooden structure raised on his plot.

According to the owner of the parcel of land, he had given that plot to one Martin to occupy upon a plea from his friend.


I have a sawmill, so, he had been coming to work there. This boy was there and a friend told him that since he doesn’t have a place to sleep he should tell me about so I give him that plot of land to mount a wooden structure to live there. At that time, he had a pregnant girlfriend and that made me give him the land,” he said.

He added that, in January 2017, Kwame said he asked Martin to vacate the plot since he wanted to develop the land, but Martin refused, threatening to kill him.

“I didn’t rent it to him, but I started hearing rumors that he wanted to kill me to take over the land, and, so, I decided to take action. So, last Friday, we came here to move him out and that was when we saw the coffins.”  He disclosed.

Kwame added that he and his family decided to put up a wall around the plot to save it from encroachment, while also deciding to uproot a Neem tree that was on the land.

But when the tree was uprooted, Kwame and his family realized that a coffin full of human bones had been buried on the property.

“There is a Neem tree too near the structure. I ordered that they should uproot it. We then saw a box containing some funny things – knife, red armbands, and bones I believe are human.”

According to him, they also saw other coffins containing human body parts in the wooden structure raised on the plot.
