Ghana Institution of Surveyors (GhlS) has disassociated itself from Richard Appiah, the prime suspect of the Abesim murder, who was reported to be a surveyor.
Mr Appaih and another suspect are currently in the grip of the police for allegedly murdering two teens at Abesim near Sunyani in the Bono Region. A stockpile of human flesh was also discovered in the room of a 28-year-old Richard who was said to be an architect.
But a statement from the GhlS, Mr Appiah is not on their role
“We wish to state categorically that, by the records of qualified and registered members of the institution comprising Land Surveyors, Quantity Surveyors and Valuation and Estate Surveyors, Mr Richard Appiah is not a bonafide member of the Ghana lnstitution of Surveyors (GhlS)”, the statement reads.
“ln addition, we as an institution do not know him or have any dealings with him,” it continued.
The GhlS says it takes a strong exception to any reportage that seeks to link the murder suspect to its professionals.
