Mafia, a young woman whose original name has been withheld, has claimed that she was a victim of blood money as she reveals that the practice is on the rise.
The young woman who is resident in the Ahafo Region disclosed that her predicament began in 2013 when she got involved in a romantic relationship with her ex-boyfriend.
Narrating her ordeal in an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, Mafia disclosed that after years of living together as a couple with her former boyfriend, he decided to travel to Accra.
She claimed that she fell severely sick before he travelled.
Mafia disclosed that her man returned from Accra with a car but he did not disclose how he bought the whip.
Unknown to her, her former boyfriend went for blood money, popularly referred to as sakawa.
Before this was made known to her, Mafia disclosed that her boyfriend insisted that he would only marry her if she became pregnant for him.
In 2018, Mafia took seed but her ex-boyfriend asked her to leave the house because he couldn't afford to marry her then, she said.
''After I left the house, I started feeling pains in my stomach but the doctors said nothing was wrong with me.''
Mafia claimed that a pastor later told her that her ex-boyfriend used her womb for sacrifice.
''The pastor told me that if I give birth, my former boyfriend would go mad and I might lose my life if I don't give birth.''
