Few days back, popular Nigerian pastor T.B Joshua, took to his church’s YouTube’s channel, Emmanuel TV, to reveal a shocking video about Ghana’s shrine ‘trokosi system’ where their priests enslave and sleep with virgin girls.
Emmanuel TV describes the 66-minute clip as, a bone-chillingly brutal tale of physical, mental, spiritual and sexual slavery that will move even the stoniest of hearts to tears.
Speaking at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos, Nigeria, Mary narrated how her family gave her as a ‘virgin sacrifice’ to Korle Shrine in order to ‘atone for the sin’ of her great-great-grandfather which was said to be behind the curse of premature deaths occurring in the family.
Mary said: “They took me to the riverside and initiated me on a journey of no return… I was then introduced to an old priest as my husband,” she recounted, explaining that all this happened in her tender infancy.

The elderly fetish priest would sexually satisfy himself with Mary at whim along with the other 500 maidens forcefully ‘imprisoned’ in the shrine.
“The priest would just point at you. He could call us chicken, goat or cow because we were cows to him then, he would sleep with us just like that,” she tearfully described.
The young lady further revealed that, her duties included preparing ‘charms’ for people seeking protection at the shrine and beseeching the gods that more sin be committed so more innocent virgins could be entrapped into the vicious cycle.
As Mary grew older, she broke protocol by taking ventures outside the shrine’s confines, one day being spotted naked by a group of foreign tourists who took her picture.
Six months later, her ‘freedom’ was procured by the foreigners in conjunction with an NGO called ‘International Needs’, leading to the release of the 500 young girls who were in ritual servitude at the shrine.
