Fellow passengers received the shock of their life when a man on board a public bus was caught with a human head in his bag.
Ekow Simpa – a 42 year old teacher from Cape Coast is in police custody for allegedly possessing a beheaded human head.
According to police reports, a police constable arrested Ekow when he was on board a vehicle headed for the Volta Region.
The police reports state that while on the bus the police constable who was seated next to Ekow noticed he was acting really nervous and sweating profusely. He had with him a bag that was soaked with a strange substance.
The police man on suspicion that something was not right looked more intently at the bag Ekow was carrying and noticed it was dripping of a red substance that he highly suspected to be blood.
And upon querying Ekow what was in his bag he replied that it was fresh meat he had just bought from the abattoir but this did not go down well with the constable who insisted he searched the bag to be sure. Ekow attempted to jump out of the moving bus but was arrested. The bag was searched and lo and behold a bleeding human head lay nestled in it.
Upon police interrogation, Ekow confessed he bought the head from one Tom Sawyer who is presently at large. He was sending the head to the Volta Region for ritual rights.
