We can no longer eat from chop bars, we are scared of eating human meat – Abesim residents cry out

Residents of Abesim, a community in the Sunyani Municipality, have expressed apprehension about patronizing local eateries known as chop bars, owing to the recent brutal murders of two youths whose remains were found in a refrigerator by the killer.

Still disturbed by the revelation, some people have expressed their fear of dining at chop bars because they are concerned that the meat used in the cuisine could be human flesh.

Following a check of his home by the police, the suspect Richard Appiah was discovered to be in possession of the bodies of two youngsters aged 12 and 15.

In his home, pieces of flesh presumed to be human parts were discovered in a refrigerator. 

In an interview the mother of one of the victims, Stephen Sarpong, said she expects her son's death will lead to the suspect's concealed serial crimes being exposed.

“We never thought the suspect was the one who killed my son until he joined us in our quest for him. We would never have apprehended him if it hadn't been for my son's death, since he has killed so many others.

“They discovered women braziers and school uniforms in this chamber. Is he a seller of braziers? So, I think my son gave his life to expose this killer for the sake of everyone's safety,” Eunice Yeboah Asuama stated.
