Herbalist jailed five years for possessing human parts

 

 A Cape Coast Circuit Court has sentenced Isaac Mensah, a 24 year old traditional medicine practitioner (Herbalist) to five years imprisonment in hard labour for possessing human skull.

Mensah, pleaded not guilty to two counts of possessing human parts and possessing fake. Currency but the court, presided over by Mrs Dorinda Arthur Smith  found him guilty of the first count after the trial and was convicted accordingly.

He is yet to be convicted of the second count because the fake currencies had been forwarded to Bank of Ghana (BoG) for forensic examination.

Police Sergeant Iddrissu Yakubu who prosecuted, told the court that the complainant, Evans Boakye, a mobile money merchant is a resident at Brimso- Apewosika while Mensah is  known a herbalist who resides at Ankaful, a suburb of Cape Coast.

He said on Tuesday March 12, 2019, Mensah paid a fake GH¢500.00 currency notes  to one  Emmanuel Akonnor  for a service rendered.

Sergeant Yakubu said Akonnor unknowingly took the money to a mobile money merchant to deposit into his wallet but the merchant, upon  suspicion that the money could be fake, called for his arrest.

He said during investigations, Akonnor mentioned Mensah as the one who gave the money to him to settle his debt.

Mensah was subsequently arrested but a human skull. was found in his room during a search.

According to Sergeant Yakubu, Mensah claimed ownership of the human skull but could not tell how he got it.
