The Okyenhene, Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin, has issued a one-week ultimatum to an Akyem Kukurantumi-based fetish priest Togbe Shitor to produce the woman seen in leaked videos invoking curses and chanting to kill President Akufo-Addo and others in his shrine.
The Physically livid Okyenhene issued the warning Monday, April 12, 2021, when the fetish priest surrendered at the Ofori Panin fie in Kyebi to answer questions about the act deemed abominable.
The fetish priest explained that he believes the videos were taken at his blindside by one of his apprentices who is no longer working with him.
The Okyenhene rebuked the fetish priest stating that he cannot exonerate himself since the incident happened at his shrine.
“You don’t respect decency in your work. How can you bath an old woman at your shrine for rituals to kill the President and Okuapehene”.
“Okuapehene is my nephew, President is my elder brother but now my grandson after ascending the throne as Okyenhene. But you had the guts to cast a spell on them on my own land not even outside Okyeman. Your conduct is all over the world and it has brought disrepute to Okyeman. Now when you look at the dailies the death of a child has been linked to a Fetish priestess at Amanase, another person arrested with human bones at Coaltar then you are also incanting to kill the President. This is wrong Why? Why?
“You can’t deny this with the excuse that you were not around when the incident took place .Okyeman has banned invocation of curse long ago”
Okyenhene said the fetish priestess and her husband at Amanase arrested by the Police for their role in the killing of the 11-year-old boy will be banished.
The overlord of Akyem Abuakwa traditional area also hinted that the traditional council will rise against fetish priests committing crimes on Okyeman lands if the state fails to act.
“When I decide right now to banish you from my land , issues of constitutionality will be raised, but you are bringing Okyeman into disrepute. But if government fails to act on these things we will rise up”.
The fetish priest allegedly leaked naked videos of a woman who visited his shrine to kill persons behind the enstoolment of the new Okuapehene.
The videos captured the woman – Attaa chanting to kill President Akufo-Addo, Okuapemhene Oseadeyo Kwasi Akufo II himself, Victor Newman a presidential staffer now deceased, and other persons who supported what she calls the illegal enstoolment of the current Okuapehene.
The woman claimed he is sister to Odehye Kwasi Akufo – a candidate who was also wrestling the Okuapehene stool.
In one of the videos leaked from the shrine of Torgbe Shitor a fetish Priest operating in Akyem Kukurantumi of the Eastern Region, the woman in a piece of cloth around her waist incanting to the gods that “agoo agoo, nananom it is me Attaa sister to Kwasi Akufo who is being denied the Okuapehene stool. I am the one putting this photo into the coffin. Anyone who is part of this grand scheme from the family must be killed and summoned to the wilderness to answer”. [Fetish priest interrupts], drives away someone who accompanied the woman. The fetish priest asked the woman to touch an amount of money she was holding on her heart area and drop it on the god.
The Fetish priest subsequently, directed the woman to inform Odehye Kwasi Akufo not to eat any food that was prepared with palm oil. The fetish priest also warned the woman to inform Odehye Kwesi Akufo not to get closer or sit on the stool because the god was going to sit on it for a while to work therefore anyone who sits on the stool will die.
“Madam listen very well, the stool must be left to be where it is, this is what the god is saying. It is going to sit on it to work, therefore anyone who sits on it will be cleared by the god.”
The spiritualist took the woman to another room where he made incantations for minutes and gave her a knife to stab a photo believed to be that of new Okuapenhene Oseadeyo Kwasi Akuffo II multiple times while enchanting on the photo to hand over the stool to odehye Kwasi Akufo.
The woman is seen in another video leaked by the fetish priest, being asked to undress in front of him and make incantation over a concoction prepared in a bucket and mention the names of persons who are working against Odehye Kwasi Akufo and his family.
“Those who have tied our souls in the middle of the Akropong so that we don’t get the support of the subjects must be dealt with -Sammy Mfum, Nana Ofei, Baamuhene, Victor Newman, President Akufo Addo are all included. Nananom deal with them and also protect our family. Now, I bath this concoction to cancel any death on our family and send it back to them “.
In another leaked video, the woman was sent naked to an open bathhouse where another shrine is located. The woman was directed by the fetish priest to bath the liquid concoction put in a locally weaved basket and chant for goodwill upon her brother Odehye Kwasi Akuffo but wish evil for his opponents including President Akufo Addo.
The fetish priest then makes final incantation while filming the nakedness of the woman.
He asked the woman to fill a plastic bottle with the concoction and take it away together with an egg to give to Odehye Kwasi Akufo for similar incantation.
The video is believed to have been taken during the heat of the Akropong Chieftaincy dispute last year.
