Police in Akosombo in the Eastern region have exhumed the bodies of two African Americans killed and buried by some unknown assailants in the region.
The victims who had gone missing for sometime were found on Tuesday afternoon on the floor with a blood stained cudgel believed to have been used to hit them by their side.

Reports indicate that the deceased who were leaders of the African American Community were recently accused by the Chieftaincy Minister, Dr. Seidu Danaa, of illegally acting as chiefs.
Speaking on Eyewitness News, the lawyer for the deceased, Sampson Lardi expressed the hope that the Police will apprehend the suspects.
“This is a big blow and we hope that the law takes full effect”
Mr. Lardi pointed out that though the town was set up to integrate African Americans back to their roots, “they might not want to come down to Ghana and we would lose the good things that come with that”
He said the other African Americans who are left in the community “need protection.”
