Chiefs and people of Elimina are calling for an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the exhumation of corpses of?female twins in Elmina at the weekend with their left hands and other parts of their bodies missing.?

Information gathered indicates that the 22-year-old twins, Patricia and Patrina Simmons who died in a gory?motor accident on Cape Coast-Takoradi highway at Antado in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem (KEEA) municipality on the 30th of December, 2013 and were buried, had their corpses exhumed from their graves at the Elmina cemetery.

The incident however has sent the town into state of fear and bewilderment as families of the deceased were shocked when they were informed on Saturday morning that the graves of the twins have been tampered with.

To ascertain the veracity of the information they received, members of the family went to the cemetery only to find, to their surprise that the graves of their twin daughters were dug open, exposing the corpses.

Sadly, the bodies were discovered to be left without their left hands and other parts of their bodies. Critical examination on the body revealed that these parts of their bodies were cut off.?However, perpetrators of this act could not be traced since the incident according to the family, might take place deep in the night.

The families who were grieved over the incident performed the necessary rituals and covered the graves again.

They are calling on the security agencies to wage investigations into the matter and apprehend the perpetrators.

Residents are also reading some meanings into the occurrence saying those who are behind the incident could do so for ritual purposes or for what is now popularly known as ?sakawa.?
