A vigilante group in and around Boti caused the arrest of four students of the Koforidua Technical Institute (KOTEC) in the Eastern region for practicing occultism.
The said students were reportedly caught in the middle of an occultism practicing session in a bush near Boti, a suburb of Koforidua according to a Starr News sources monitored.
The vigilante group who were suspicious of the four students’ activities closely monitored them and later on closed in on them when they started their chanting session at the said spot. They quickly rounded them up, but one of devotees escaped whilst the other three were handed over to the Nkurakan police.
The students admitted the offence during interrogation by the police but explained that the rituals were meant to cast spells on some beautiful female students in the school who they wanted to hypnotize to become their sexual partners.
The alarming rate of occultism practice amongst students, especially Senior High Schools came to the fore, some three years back when seven students of the Adidome Senior High School in the Volta Region were suspended indefinitely for practising occultism in the school.
An alleged grandmaster at the school, disclosed that occultism in senior high schools across the country was real and prevalent.
