Residents of Dumanfo, near Mamponteng in the Kwabere East Municipality of the Ashanti Region, are in fear after a suspected ritualist amputated the hand of a corpse awaiting burial.

The funeral for the deceased, 38-year-old Clement Osei Kofi, was abruptly halted when his family discovered the missing hand in the early hours of Thursday, May 30, 2024.

The sister of the deceased, Yaa Pomaa, told OTEC News reporter Jacob Agyenim Boateng that her brother had both hands intact when they brought him home for the funeral.

“The corpse was arranged and laid on the bed for sympathizers to pay their last respects to him, as custom demands.”

“We fell asleep while watching the corpse only to wake in the morning and discover the bed on which we had laid our brother had been tampered with; after a thorough check of the body, we saw his left hand had been cut off,” she told the reporter.
