The Tema Police Command has explained that the man who was arrested by New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters at the Akojo Park in Community One on Sunday for allegedly carrying a severed human head only carried a bag that contained sand and rubbish.
The timely intervention by policemen on the grounds saved him from being lynched. He was taken to the Community One police station.
ASP Juliana Obeng in charge of Tema Regional Police Public Relations told Graphic Online on Monday morning that when the polythene bag was emptied at the Police Station under the watchful eyes of the Assistant Commissioner of Police, (ACP), Mr Kwaku Boadu-Preprah, Deputy Tema Regional Police Commander, it turned out that the items found in the polythene bag were sand and rubbish and not a human head as was alleged.
ASP Obeng said the suspect has since been released unconditionally
