Video: Father Arrested For Allegedly Intending To Kill Daughter For Money Ritual
A father, identified as Evans Oppong in a viral video, has been nabbed by the police for allegedly attempting to kill his daughter for ritual purposes.
He was arrested after a herbalist who identified himself as Nana Adu Boafo Junior called the police when Evans called on his residence to embark on his riches agenda.
According to the herbalist, Evans just returned from abroad and sought to sacrifice two out of his twelve children to make money.
“This man came from overseas and says he is facing financial difficulties. He has twelve kids and so has decided to sacrifice two of them for a money ritual”, the herbalist said in the video.
In the video, Evans was covered from the waist with a plain white cloth with a pot beside him and seated on a stool on the compound of a house purported to be the herbalist’s, obviously waiting for her innocent daughter who was comfortably seated in the living room, to be killed.
He was, however, stunned by the sudden presence of police officers.
“He promised me 10,000 GHc and other good surprises after the rituals”, the herbalist disclosed in a Facebook post.
According to him, Evans picked the girl from her school during lesson hours with the excuse of buying her a new dress and sent her there to be killed.
Nana Adu Boafo noted that herbalists are not as barbaric as portrayed in movies.
“I am a military officer and a disciplined one for that matter. I don’t do such a thing. I want to prove to the whole world and my neighbours that traditional herbalists are not wicked. We don’t kill people as portrayed in movies. This man is a bad man.”
