Nana Adu-Boafo, a herbalist from Oyibi, requested the police to arrest Evans Oppong, the father of 12 children.
A video circulating online has captured the moment police, summoned by a local doctor, arrived at a scene in Ghana to arrest a dad who planned to sacrifice his two children for money.
Nana Adu-Boafo, a herbalist from Oyibi, has asked the police to arrest Evans Oppong, the father of 12 children.
The defendant is accused of picking up his daughter from school while lessons were still in session and driving directly to the herbalist’s home to execute the rites. The suspect, who claims to have returned from a trip overseas, is claimed to have gone to the home of Nana Adu-Boafo, a herbalist, and asked to be made wealthy.
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.”
