The woman in her forties who was on Wednesday dragged to the Adabraka police station for allegedly selling human parts as meat has told the police that the meat was beef.
In an interview with the Daily Guide, Greater Accra police PRO Effia Tenge quoted Florence Appiah as saying during interrogation that it was her pastor (name withheld) who directed her to sell the meat at the market.
“My two children died mysteriously and when I contacted my pastor, he prayed for me and further asked me to go and buy cow meat and carry it in and around a marketplace to avert any future occurrence of death," she was quoted as saying.
The police are said to be awaiting the result of a lab test in order to determine if it was human meat or not.
Florence was nearly lynched after news spread at the Adabraka Fish Market that she was selling human meat to unsuspecting people.
She was, however, rescued by the police.
