Man arrested as sangoma calls police after he brought his own daughter to him for money rituals


A Ghanaian man has been arrested after a herbalist exposed his attempt to use his daughter for money rituals.

A video shared by Nana Adu-Boafo Jnr on Facebook revealed how the man, Evans Oppong (who is also captured in the video wearing a plain white cloth and sitting on a wooden stool) brought his daughter to him, optimistic that she would be killed for rituals.

He explains in the post that Oppong had just returned from abroad and came to him for help since things were not going on well for him.

Adu-Boafo added the man explained that he had 12 children and wanted to use two of them for rituals.

However, unknown to Oppong, he had just walked into a trap.

“This man brought his own biological daughter to me for money rituals. He promised me 10 000 GHc (US$1 265) and other good surprises after the rituals.

“I was crying within me because I have sympathy for humans and animals; I do not kill people, sometimes I do not even eat my own poultry because I grow so much love for them.

“The sad thing is he even picked the daughter from school during school hours, ostensibly to buy her a new dress. This is a bad man with many evil intentions,” Adu-Boafo Jnr wrote.

Uniformed policemen handcuffed Oppong and the little girl was whisked away by her mother, who also came to the house.
