People have been left wondering whether popular footballer and sports commentator, Richard Gyamfi, is a cannibal or was into ritual killings following the discovery of three human heads in his refrigerator.
The Police arrested the innocent-looking Gyamfi at the weekend after the father of one of his victims, a 13-year-old boy, cried out over not knowing the whereabouts of his son.
It was then discovered that Gyamfi had lured the boy, Louis Agyemang Junior, into his house, where he murdered him and stored the severed head in the fridge alongside those of two other victims.
Reports say that led the search into Gyamfi’s house was the report by a friend of Agyemang, who said he last saw the missing boy with Gyamfi in the football park at Sunyani Abesim.
Gyamfi sparked suspicions when he denied seeing the boy. The sports commentator further raised eyebrows when he said his house keys were missing.
The search party reinforced and broke into the house where they found the remains of Agyemang, on the floor.
The head had been severed and kept in the fridge, in his living quarters at Alaska, near Abesim.
The gruesome discovery was made when operatives of Bono Regional Police Command arrived. They found three heads packed in the fridge of the footballer.
Gymafi, who is 28 years old, is now accused of not just the murder of 15-year-old Agyemang, but also the murder of a 12-year-old. However, the identity of his third victim was yet to be unravelled.
The Director of Public Affairs, Ghana Police Service, Alexander Kwaku Obeng says both Gyamfi and the second suspect arrested will help the police investigation.
“The remains are being moved to the Ghana Police Service hospital morgue in Accra for forensic analysis to be done to support the investigation,” he added, in a report by MyJoyOnline.
The Police spokesman disclosed that clinical psychologists and counsellors have also been deployed to support and counsel persons affected by the murder, including the families, some community members and the Police who led the search.
