Confirming the incident to DGN Online, DSP Efia Tenge said on Monday, November 22, 2021, the Police in Ho received a wired report.
The report was about a stench from a room in a house located at Fiave, a suburb of Ho, the Volta Regional capital. Apart from the stench which pointed to a decomposed organic material, house flies were hovering around the doors and windows of the room.
The neighbours of the occupant of the room had been waiting for one Frank, the tenant to come home, but had not returned.
