Residents are drawing a link between the two events as news spread that the ring that was stuck on the gentleman's finger would only be removed when a baby is sacrificed.

As previously reported, Emmanuel Otabil, the gentleman at Iron City in Kasoa, who went viral after he wore the ring that seemed to be 'eating' up his finger disclosed that it had been removed.

He admitted that the owner of the ring had said that the blood of a newborn baby was required to remove the ring or he would lose his finger eventually.

However, according to Emmanuel, a powerful mallam came to his rescue and performed some rituals which eventually got the ring off his finger, but he did not mention which particular rituals were performed.

The police are currently looking for the owner of the baby or anyone who might be complaining of a missing child.

In the video, the gentleman simply set his teeth on the coconut and used the strength in his teeth and jaw to briskly peel off the entire husk in a matter of seconds.
