Fetish Priest, Man Drown During Ritual Cleansing

A 40-year-old fetish priest and a man who had gone for consultation have allegedly drowned in the Pra River at Adansi-Asese in the Ashanti region.

According to reports, Nana Kwesi Afram had gone to the river with 53-year-old Kwaku Donkor for spiritual cleansing when the incident occurred.

Brother of the deceased, Kwaku Oppong in an interview on Adom News said, the late Kwaku Donkor has been sick for the past four years.

The ailment which he said was diabetes had gone from bad to worse after several medical treatments so the deceased decided to seek spiritual help only to drown.

The chief of Adansi-Asese, Nana Kwesi Eholu expressed shock at the incident since he claimed the fetish priest came from Kwahu to seek permission to perform spiritual cleansing for a sick person.

He was convinced the fetish priest and his patient drowned because the priest ignored his advise not to offer a black and white goat to the river deity.

“The Pra River likes pure black goat but this fetish priest ignored our advise and sacrificed a black and white goat which was why they drowned” he added.

Nana Kwesi Eholu said the bodies have so far not been found, but they will have to perform some rituals as their death is a taboo.
