The woman was dragged to the police station by traders at the Adabraka
Market after she refused to indicate which meat she was selling.
Now the woman who is currently in police custody has claimed that she
was directed to engage in the trade by her ‘spiritual pastor’.
Greater Accra regional Police Commander, ASP Afia
Tenge said on Adom FM’s Morning Show, ‘Dwaso Nsem’ Thursday that
60-year-old Florence Appiah said she was instructed to sell meat to make
a living by her ‘spiritual Pastor’.
“She said she bought her meat at Makola and was coming to sell at
Adabraka market but she was new in the market…she said selling the meat
was a direction from her Spiritual Pastor and that it was a cow meat she
had bought from Makola to come and sell at the market…,” she said.
Florence, according to the market women, was carrying a tray with some pieces of meat, and was moving strangely in the market.
The Police PRO continued that the Adabraka police had to move in swiftly
to prevent the mob from lynching her on the suspicion of selling human
The police, she said took the woman and the meat to their station but
could not immediately tell the kind of meat she was selling from just a
look at it.
“We only know its grilled meat but it is difficult for the police to
determine whether it is human meat or otherwise, so we forwarded the
said meat to national CID for forensic testing to show if it is human
meat or not…,” she said.
She called on the public to remain calm as the forensic report is still yet to come out.
