A man has allegedly found a coffin full of what is suspected to be human remains buried in his plot of land in Adenta, a suburb of Accra.
The plot owner - identifying himself only as Kwame - who was speaking to Accra100.5FM's Jerry Forson said that he temporarily gave the plot in question to a young man by the name of Martin, working with him who was in need of a place to stay.
Since the plot of land was vacant, he decided to let the young man build a wooden structure for himself in order for him to have proper shelter from the elements.
"At that time he had a pregnant girlfriend and that made me give him the land."
“I didn’t rent it to him, but I started hearing rumours that he wanted to kill me to take over the land, and, so, I decided to take action."
