A mother has told a chilling story of how a pastor made her do all sorts of things in her quest to seek a cure for her autistic daughter.
Madam Kuffour, a teacher revealed on Kofi TV how some Ghanaian pastors made her do the worse by giving her autistic daughter all sorts of concoctions.
According to the trained teacher, she had very little knowledge on her daughter’s condition and was very naive.
“When I gave birth to her, nothing showed there was something wrong. Even at the age of two, she was speaking. She used to say, ‘I will drink water’. But at the age of 3, I realized she had begun to isolate herself. She lost consciousness, and even if you speak to her, you will not get a response. She doesn’t sleep at night, and she used to make irritating sounds,” she said.
She noted that, this led her to seek spiritual help from a lot of places.
“I’ve been to a lot of prayer camps. I have roamed a lot,” she added.
Madam Kuffuor then revealed her encounter with one man of God who lured her to feed her autistic daughter, Nana Ohenewaa Kuffour with leftover food from the market to heal her of the condition.
“I was told to go to the market in the evening, around 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM to collect left over food from the market women when they are done selling their foodstuff. I was instructed to cook and feed them to my daughter. Spiritually, it showed that my daughter is not struggling with anyone over anything. So if someone had tied her spiritually, the person should let go,” she explained.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the 37-year old nurse who was murdered at Ayoum, a suburb in Kuamsi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana has been laid to rest on Saturday, February 15.
The funeral was attended by hundreds of sympathizers and mourners who joined the family of the deceased to bid her farewell.
According to a report by Citi News the ceremony was a solemn one.
