A video showing the moment the police apprehended the man, who is said to be a father of 12 children, at the herbalist’s house is currently trending online.
According to the Oyibi-based herbalist, Nana Adu-Boafo, the suspect came to his house and requested to be made rich because things have not been easy for him. He also promised to sacrifice two of his children for the ritual.
On the day of the incident, the suspect who was identified as Evans Oppong, went to pick up his daughter from school during school hours and brought her directly to the native doctor’s house for the fetish procedure.
However, Nana Adu-Baofo who stated that he doesn’t engage in such sinister rituals, invited the police to arrest the wicked father.
Narrating the incident, Boafo said;
“The girl’s father came to see me, he told me he just landed in the country after staying overseas for a while, and it hasn’t been easy for him. He told me he is a father of 12 and is offering two of them for money rituals. He offered me GHS 10,000 and other good surprises when the job is done. Sadly, he had just picked the daughter up during school hours and told her he was going to get her a new dress.
“Yes, I am a herbalist, but I am also a military man. I am very disciplined. I don’t engage in any sinister activities. I want to prove to the world that herbalists are not as evil as they are painted. We are not killers as is portrayed in movies, we are healers. I have the little girl he brought for me to kill.”
