A herbalist by name Hassan Talha has duped a couple of an estimated amount of GHC94,000 in after promising he would retrieve a pot of gold buried in the family house of the couple.
CelebritiesBuzz reports that the fetish priest who is also known as Alhassan, started the plot after he was hospitalized and the victims Charles Addai and Emelia Oppong, came to his aid.
The fetish priest had been involved in an accident in Kumasi and called Addai since he had no relatives in Kumasi.
Alhassan was taken into the couple's house where he was cared for until he fully recovered.
As a way of paying back for the kind gesture, Alhassan told the couple he had seen in the spiritual realm that there was a pot of gold buried in a family compound and could help retrieve it.
He named several items that he would need to perform the ritual and was given the whopping amount to purchase the items.
In an unexpected turn of events, Hassan Talha rather went into hiding after getting hold of the money. After a relentless pursuit, Alhassan was discovered and arrested at Mampong. He was charged accordingly.
There have been divided opinions on the specific amount Alhassan took. Addai and he wife insist they gave the man GHC94,000 while he refutes it saying he took only GHC35,000.
Meanwhile, Popular Ghanaian artiste Okyeame Kwame has come out to reveal that the main cause of many breakups in marriages is the fact that many partners practice phubbing.
