I’m tired of burying dead bodies – Buduburam chief cries

Chief of Gomoa Budumburam, Nana Kojo Essel II, has said his people are under self-imposed curfew due to persisted robbery attacks in the area.

According to him, the area allocated for refugees from Liberia is now a den for all manner of criminal activities.

A distraught Nana Essel on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem programme, Thursday said they are at their wits end following the murder of two police officers in the area.

He revealed how he is compelled to bury dead bodies on almost daily basis due to the increased criminal activities in the area.

“I have to bury dead bodies abandoned in the area. Most of the corpses have missing body parts, obviously they use them for ritual purposes,” he bemoaned.

The Gomoa Budumburam chief revealed that, the Liberia Camp is a no go area around 6:00pm and anyone who dares try is either robbed or killed.

“The police are even afraid to go there because these armed robbers, mostly Ghanaians, have taken over the camp,” he narrated.

Nana Essel said the camp has outlived its usefulness, hence must be demolished and the land used for an infrastructural project which will benefit the community.
