The Ghana Police Hospital will soon embark on a mass burial for some 200 unidentified and unclaimed bodies.
This, they say, is to decongest the hospital mortuary.
According to the Police Hospital, “These unidentified and unclaimed dead bodies are made up of mostly paupers, unknown former patients, abandoned dead bodies, unidentified accident and crime victims”.
In a press release dated March 12, and signed by the Head of Public Affairs, Yaw Nketia-Yeboah, the Police Hospital urged families to visit the hospital to retrieve the remains of their beloved.
“The general public is hereby being informed to contact the Pathology Department of the Ghana Police Hospital for identification of the persons who might have not been seen for some time as part of the search.”
DSP Nketia-Yeboah in the statement explained that the clarion call to members of the general public is to avert any situation or instance whereby “such bodies are added to those earmarked for the mass burial.”
Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Hospital also urged Ghanaians to carry their IDs along with them for easy identification in the event of any unforeseen circumstances.
“Members of the general public are also hereby encouraged to acquire the habit of always having their National Identification Cards or that of any organization on them to help Police and others easily identify them whenever they are in any health crises or involved in an accident,” the statement concluded.
