It turned out to be a chaotic scene when a 60-year-old man got beaten by a fetish priestess upon opposing the sprinkling of 'kpekple' in his house.
As part of routine tradition under the Ga culture, the Homowo festival, which happens in August, all houses under the jurisprudence of Ga Mashie will have handfuls of -Kpekple' sprinkled.
This was not the case with Joseph Bortey Bortei. Being a Christian, he rejected the tradition be done in his house and this struck the nerve of the fetish priestess who beat him in the process.
“For the past two years, I have refused them access to my house to sprinkle the Kpekple because it is against my Christian faith and when they came again on Tuesday I refused. This angered the pettish priestess who began to beat me, the team she was leading also joined, inflicting me with bruises,” he added.
