Police in Accra have launched a manhunt for a 17-year-old boy who assisted his mother to bury his uncle under a kiosk.
The suspects buried the 39-year-old man under the kiosk at Okpoi Gonno, near the Hydrophone Estate in Accra.
The Homicide and Crime Unit of the Police headquarters in Accra are collaborating with the Okpoi Gonno police to exhume the corpse for autopsy and investigations.
According to the prosecution witness Sergeant Mabel Atsu of the Okpoi Gonno District Police, the police had a tip off last week that a woman had buried her elder brother under the kiosk they both lived.
She said, the police upon investigations arrested the suspect Gladys Yeboah, a trader, and upon interrogation she admitted burying the deceased known as Kwadwo Asare.
She said her brother fell ill in November, last year and died on December 31.
Gladys said with the assistance of her son the corpse was buried at about 11pm because she did not know what to do.
Meanwhile, the Teshie District Magistrate court, has remanded into police custody the 36- year- old woman while investigations continue.
