Ritualistic activities and ritual murders seem to be on the rise in Ghana. Yesterday I referred to some recent cases. However, ritual killings are nothing new in this West African country, as the Ghana Web article of August 29 (presented below) illustrates.
I have reported earlier on ritual murders in Ghana, covering the 2006 – 2012 period, with more than 30 reported ritual murders between 2006 and 2012, and also including a ritual murder case dating back as far as 1944. And, of course, one of the most notorious ritual murder cases in recent times is the Kasoa murder case.
Regrettably,, most links to the articles on ritual murders of the 2006-2012 period have disappeared (it is precisely for this reason that I’ve changed methods for the present site and have decided to include on this site a copy of the articles mentioned (‘copy-paste’) – while of course including a reference to the source and the author of the article(s).
Soon here, on this site, more on recent developments in the ongoing trial of the accused ritual murderers in the Kasoa ritual murder case, two teenagers (webmaster FVDK).

The following two sections report on a notorious serial killer and not on ritual murders and have for this reason been deleted by the webmaster (FVDK).
More on these ritual killings in tomorrow’s posting (FVDK).
