Rita Tetteh Korkor, a single mother of three kids, has given a chilling account of how her husband used their first child for money rituals known as 'sakawa.'
In an interview with DJ Nyaami of SVTV Africa, Tetteh Korkor disclosed her husband told her about his plan to go in for money rituals but she vehemently advised against it.
According to her, she stood against it because she knew the ritual would demand a human sacrifice and she did not want any part of it.
Tetteh Korkor revealed her husband refused to heed her advice and went for the ritual.
''He came home with an item, hanged it in the room, and warned us not to touch it,'' she said.
Subsequently, their son fell seriously ill and she came to realise the ritual was the cause.
Fearing for the outcome of the unknown, Tetter Korkor left their home.
''When my son fell ill, I realised he used my son for the money ritual. So I told my parents about it, and sought help for my son.''
For being a protective mother, her husband labeled her a witch for disrupting the ritual process.
Tetter Korkor revealed that her husband was not supposed to inform anyone about his dealings, else, the money ritual would not yield results.
