The Police have retrieved the body of the 58-year-old security man who was allegedly killed Friday, September 16.

The body was found in a shallow grave on the outskirts of Wa on Sunday, September 18.

A local search team informed the police.

“We got to a point and identified some items we suspected to be human parts. We moved on to an uncompleted building, and we also found some strange materials there too,” a member of the local search team said.

“They [the police] came, and it was a very narrow grave that they buried one of the night security men we’ve been looking for,” he added.

His murder raised the number of murdered security personnel in the region to seven in the last five months.

This happened near the Wa Technical Institute and is the second to have occurred this week.

Traces of blood were found on the floor near the duty post of the victim. Residents suspect both missing persons have been killed and their bodies hidden.

The Upper West Regional Security Council has subsequently outlined measures to deal with the canker.

In a statement on Thursday, the Council noted that the issues had left many residents in fear; hence, the need for stakeholders to end it as soon as possible.

“While investigations on these worrying incidents are ongoing, the Upper West Regional Security Council has authorised increased cooperation and collaboration among the intelligence agencies and seeks to deepen engagement with inhabitants within the municipality in line with contemporary security practices.
