The human skull with other telltale objects

Police are seriously looking for a man in his early thirties alleged to have engaged in sakawa money rituals, using a human skull in a black polythene bag and a small bag containing a piece of red cloth.

According to a police source, a man at Kojokrom, near Sekondi in the Western region, called Gordor (now deceased) used to run a drinking bar near the main lorry station.

After his death, a man popularly called Menge alias Pozo took over the place but did not use it as a drinking spot.

Later, Kobina Gordor, the original owners son, decided to revive the drinking bar, so he asked Pozo to open up the abandoned building so he could clean it up.

In the course of the clean-up, Kobina Gordor came across a black polythene bag and when he opened it, he found a human skull and a small box with a piece of red cloth tied around it. There were also some white papers cut to the size of currency notes inside the bag.

Kobina Gordor quickly raised an alarm and confronted Pozo, who initially denied knowledge of the strange items in the polythene bag at the corner of the room.

However, when some of Kobina Gordors other relatives came around and threatened to report the matter to police, Pozo admitted that the human skull and other items belonged to him and a friend of his called Noble, also a resident of Kojokrom.

Pozo allegedly also told the people that they used the skull and other items for special juju, alleged to rake in sakawa money and pleaded with them not report the case to the police.

Pozo managed to escape in the course of pleading for leniency, but the strange items ostensibly used for the sakawa money are currently in police custody, pending further investigation.
