A video making rounds online has captured moment the police who were called in by a native doctor, arrived at a scene to arrest a man who wanted to sacrifice his two children for money in Ghana.
The Oyibi-based herbalist, Nana Adu-Boafo invited the police to arrest the father of 12 identified as Evans Oppong.
The suspect is said to have picked his daughter from school while classes were still on and headed straight to the herbalist’s house to perform the rituals. The suspect, who claims to have returned from a sojourn abroad, is said to have visited the home of a herbalist, Nana Adu-Boafo and requested to be made rich.
Oppong also promised to sacrifice his two children for money. 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.”
