Demon pigs with a taste of human flesh have invaded a cemetery in the town of Birem in Ghana.
These pigs are not letting the dead rest in peace, as they are digging up the carcasses and then feasting on them afterwards.
The man-eating pigs, from the cemetery, also run into a stream that provides drinking water for residents in the area, and pollute the water.
Now families of the deceased have the gruesome task of saving their loved-ones remains and reburying them.
The pigs come from farms around the area, where the farmers are not providing proper enclosures for their stock. The result is that the pigs run wild.
Leaders in Birem have appealed to the government to come to their aid and stop the marauding pigs from causing more havoc.
‘I am, on behalf of my people, passionately appealing to the government to come to our aid by instructing the pig owners to provide shelter for the pigs to stop them from entering the cemetery,’ traditional leader, Nana Baffuor Agyekum said on Kessben FM.
Two of the pigs were killed and brought to the leader’s palace. He then summoned the owners of the pigs to his palace and released the two dead animals to them, warning them to provide shelter for the animals to prevent them from entering the cemetery in future.
He then went with other elders to the cemetery and conducted ceremonies to pacify the now restless spirits f the deceased.
The Birem Chief said he then informed the police, the DCE of the area and the Environmental Protection Agency to get involved to ensure that the pig owners would not let their animals loose again.
To avert any trouble or bloodshed, the Birem chief implored the government and the appropriate authorities to intervene immediately since the man-eating animals were gradually getting out of hand.
