“We have not seen or hear such an abomination before in this town, how can you go and dig and loot skeletons of a dead person but not thinking of your end, why have they left the skull here but not taking it along with what they looted from here?” she quizzed?

“We are going to deploy security to monitor the place and ward off the miscreants, and anybody who will be caught will face the full rigorous of the law,” he told UTV’s Kwabena Dickson.
