A 19-year-old man, Kyei Baffour has been arrested by the police at Pobiman, a suburb at Ashiaman in Accra for allegedly presenting his four-year-old nephew to be slaughtered for rituals.
The said unemployed suspect is reported to have lured his innocent nephew to the shrine of a fetish priest ('juju' man) after both of them (himself and fetish priest) had arranged to offer him (the nephew) for sacrifice in order to make money.
According to the fetish priest, he early on warned Baffour that the rituals would demand blood thus the need for he, Kyei Baffour to reconsider his move. Kyei Baffour, in his avid search for money, refused to turn down the offer thus ordering the priest to go ahead with the rituals.
The Amasaman District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police Mr Elvis Bawa Sadongo, said about 8 p.m. on October 21, 2015, the police received a call from the spiritualist that a man had called at his shrine with his nephew to be sacrificed for money.
Meanwhile the said nephew, whose name has been withheld, has been handed over to his grandmother with whom he stayed.
