Police arrest nine individuals for false claims of genital disappearance


The Ghana Police Service has arrested nine (9) persons across the country for the publication of false news regarding the alleged disappearance of their genitals, which led to fear and panic among the public and attacks on innocent citizens. 

In a release, it said, “Police investigations, including medical examinations, disclosed that all the claims are false.”

Police say, so far, 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.

Five (5) have been arraigned before court, with three (3) remanded into police custody and two granted bail. 

The rest are on Police inquiry bail and will soon be arraigned before Court.

“The Ghana Police Service 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.”

The Police cautioned against propagating false information about vanishing genitals, resulting in fear and panic among the public. 

“We wish to caution the public against such criminal conduct that is likely to harm innocent people as well as disturb public peace,” the statement noted.
