The traditional leaders of Ngleshie Amanfrom in the Ga South Municipality of the Greater Accra Region have asked a  family to exhume a body they buried last Saturday at the Amanfrom cemetery.

The family reportedly buried their relative at the Amanfrom cemetery without the permission of the traditional authorities on Saturday.

Information gathered revealed that the family snuck into the Amanfrom Cemetary to bury the dead without performing any rites or paying bills.

When the news broke out to the traditional leaders, they objected to the burial with the explanation that it goes against cultural values during the ban on noisemaking.

They forced the family to exhume the body and deposit it back in the mortuary and wait until the ban is over on June 14 or bury him outside Ga jurisdiction.

Meanwhile, the environmental agency is yet to visit the grave site to fumigate the environment.
