Source: Ghana Police Service

The Ghana Police Service has arrested nine persons for publication of false news regarding the alleged disappearance of their genitals that led to fear and panic among the public and attacks on innocent citizens.

Police investigations, including medical examinations, disclosed that all the claims are false.

Six persons have been arrested in Kasoa, in the Central Region, two in Ashaiman, in the Greater Accra Region, and another in Nkawkaw, in the Eastern Region, for making such false claims of missing genitals.

Currently, five have been put before court with three remanded into police custody and two granted bail. 

The rest are on police inquiry bail and would soon be put before the court.

The Ghana Police Service in a statement said “it notes with concern this increasing trend of persons making false claims of the disappearance of their genitals and blaming innocent bystanders that sometimes lead to mob attacks. We wish to caution the public against such criminal conduct that is likely to harm innocent people as well as disturb the public peace.”
