In an accident involving two motorcycles in Bomso, near Asuom in the Kwaebibirem Municipality of the Eastern Region, two people died on the spot and five others suffered life-threatening injuries.
One of the dead had his head severed from his body, and it took a police dig to find it in a nearby bush.
“On 22/5/2021, at 1.00am, Police Asuom had intelligence that there was an accident at Bomso, near the Adventist Preparatory School, involving four motorbikes,” said Chief Inspector Kumi Mante of the Asuom District Police Command.
“Upon receiving the report, police rushed to the scene and discovered two Royal Motorbikes, one unregistered and the other with registration No. M 21 GR 9666, as well as the lifeless bodies of one Laphew Obeng, age 20, and one Tawiah, age 20, whose head was nowhere to be found,” he added.
“A hunt was undertaken in the local bush to find the head, but it was not found,” the Chief Inspector said.
“Three accident patients, Asante Michael, 18 years old, Nuamah Samuel, 17 years old, and Andrews Keddeh, 20 years old, who suffered varying degrees of injury were treated and discharged at the Tweapease Health Centre,” he said.
According to Chief Insp. Mante, one Jeff, 18, suffered a left leg fracture and was referred to Kade Government Hospital for treatment, while Kwaku Amponsah, 17, is being treated at the Asuom Health Center.
Meanwhile, attempts are being made to trace the other crash motorcycles so that more steps can be taken.
The remains have been preserved for autopsy at the Kade Hospital Mortuary.
The two motorcycles were seized and taken to the charge office.
