In a bid to decongest the hospital mortuary, the Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Hospital, Superintendent Yaw Nketia -Yeboah said it will embark on a mass burial for 250 unidentified and unclaimed dead bodies.
“These unidentified and unclaimed dead bodies are made up of mostly paupers, unknown former patients, abandoned dead bodies, unidentified accident and crime victims,” he said.
In a statement issued in Accra, the public has been urged to contact the Pathology Department of the Ghana Police Hospital for identification of the persons who might have not been seen for some time.
Supt. Nketia-Yeboah said the announcement is to avert a situation whereby such bodies are added to those earmarked for mass burial.
Yeboah encouraged the public to acquire the habit of always having their National Identification Cards or that of any organisation on them to help the Police and others easily identify them whenever they are in any health crisis or involved in an accident.
