A/R: Over  250 Dead Bodies Exhumed At Pramso Cemetary Bruohaha, Chief Denies Personal Interest In Exercise

Over 250 corpse has been ordered to be exhumated from, Pramso  Community Cemetary, a sub in the Bostwe District in the Ashanti Region by the Chief, Nana Gyanpon- Tua II as it has been sold to a private developer.

The Assembly Member of the area, Hon Owusu Sekyere in an interview with Fox Morning drive show host, John Marfo who is Popularly known as " Sir John" stated that over two hundred and fifty corpses were exhumed last month and alleged that the area has been sold by the Chief to a private developer for two million cedis.

 
Responding to the claims, Nana Gyanpontua II debunked all allegations levelled against him as false and should be disregarded emphasising that, the relocation was to pave way for some development after he received the go-ahead from Manhyia.

“I ordered for the dead bodies to be exhumed from the old cemetery and rebury them at the new place. I had received permission from Manhyia to undertake that action”

 Meanwhile, Residents in the community said they disagreed with their chief sensing some fishy intention to use the land for his interest.

 According to them, they believed Manhyia would only permit the Chief to clear a portion of the cemetery for road construction but not to clear the entire cemetery and threaten to resist any attempt to continue this exercise by the Chief because it’s against the customs and traditions of the area.

 

The exercise which was carried out without strict monitoring and supervision from health experts is likely to spark health implications within the community.

  The deputy regional director in charge of public health, Dr Michael Rockson Adjei, during the show described the exercise as "disgusting" and promised to send a surveillance team to the community.
