Albinos destined for Bukruwa in the Eastern Region risk being killed for ritual purposes, warns Nana Agyare Osei Tutu III, Chief of the town.

This is because centuries-old tradition of the small town suggests sacrificing albinos to the gods of the town brings good omen to its indigenes.

Albinism is a health condition in which a person has little or no skin pigment.

The latest revelation follows stories in the media about the murder of albinos in Tanzania for spiritual medicine. Already such reports have sparked international furor.
