The police hospital has announced that it will conduct a mass burial for 160 unclaimed bodies as part of routine measures to decongest the hospital mortuary.

A statement issued and signed by DSP Yaw Nketia-Yebaoh in charge of the Public Affairs Directorate of the Hospital and copied to the media reads “the Ghana Police Hospital will embark on a mass burial for about one hundred and sixty (160) unidentified and unclaimed bodies as part of routine measures to decongest the hospital mortuary.

The general public is hereby being informed to contact the Pathology Department of the Ghana Police Hospital for identification of the persons who might have not been seen for some time as part of the search.

This is to avert a situation whereby such bodies are added to those earmarked for the mass burial after twenty-one (21) days from this announcement. Members of the general public are also hereby encouraged to acquire the habit of always having their National Identification Cards or that of any organization on them to help police and others easily identify them whenever they are in any health crises or involved in an accident.”
