Police Hospital to bury 150 en masse
The Police Hospital in Accra has announced that it will undertake a mass burial of some 150 unknown and unclaimed bodies on Wednesday, 24 April 2019.
The exercise forms part of routine measures to decongest the mortuary, the hospital’s PRO, DSP Yaw Nketia-Yeboah, said in a statement.
The public has been advised to contact the Pathology Department of the hospital within the next 21 days for identification of individuals who might not have been seen for some time to “avert a situation whereby such bodies are added to those earmarked for the mass burial”.
The police have also advised the public to carry ID cards on them for easy identification in the case of accidents or health emergencies.
