The desire among three friends from Asante Bekwai in the Ashanti Region to become rich overnight by way of rituals (Sakawa) turned bizarre when one of them allegedly turned into a cat after sleeping in a coffin for seven days.
The names of the three friends were given as Kwadwo Kumasi, 28; Yaw Mensah, 37, and Kwame Osei, 26.
They are said to have contacted a popular jujuman, identified as Mallam Kantanka, at Sefwi Asawinso in the Western Region, to perform rituals for them to become rich overnight.
As part of the rituals, the jujuman instructed them to sleep in a coffin in turns for seven days.
According to a resident of Asawinso, Nana Yaw Koranteng, who is a close friend of Mallam Kantanka’s, Kumasi elected himself to be the first to sleep in the coffin, while the remaining two waited for their turns.
Nana Koranteng said when the first seven days elapsed, two of the friends went to check on Mallam Kantanka at his shrine but he was nowhere to be found.
He said apart from the disappearance of the jujuman, there was no trace of Kumasi who had slept in the coffin.
Worried about the turn of events, Nana Koranteng said, the two friends quickly reported the case to the police at Asawinso.
When contacted, the Asawinso District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mr Richard Boahen, confirmed the incident and said the two friends reported the incident last Monday and the police quickly invited Mallam Kantanka for interrogation.
During the interrogation, Mr Boahen said, Mallam Kantanka confirmed the report of the two complainants but said the jujuman gave the two seven more days to perform some rituals to bring Kumasi back to life.
He said the police were waiting to see Kumasi’s return, as promised by Mallam Kantanka, while investigations were ongoing.
As of the time of filing this report, some policemen and residents of Asawinso had thronged the premises of the shrine to see how Mallam Kantanka could possibly bring Kumasi back to life.
According to reports yet to be confirmed, a cat and an amount of money were found in a coffin in which Kumasi had slept for the rituals.
It is suspected that Kumasi had turned into the cat.
Some of the people the Daily Graphic spoke to dismissed that claim as mere superstition, but others said in the era of ‘sakawa’, it was difficult to wish the reports away.
Revealed: Why UK freed Nayele Ametefe after serving 3 years of her 8-year jail time
Drug Queen Nayele Ametefe has been released from jail having served only three years out of her 8 and a half years sentence for narcotics peddling and trafficking.
We learnt she was released days ago on parole for showing extraordinarily good behaviour throughout her 3 years in prison, even though she has 5 and a half years to go.
Parole is a temporary release of a prisoner who agrees to certain conditions before the completion of the maximum sentence period, originating from the French ‘parole’.
The Ghanaian who also hold an Austrian passport pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom was been sentenced to eight years, eight months’ imprisonment.
Nayele Ametefe was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea. Nayele appeared in court well dressed and looked indifferent when the sentence was handed down on her head.
The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested. The money was payment for her courier services.
According to the prosecutors, Nayele Ametefe was carting the cocaine to South America. Her travel itinerary, the court was told indicated that she was leaving the United Kingdom two days after her arrival, for the Dominican Republic.
The 12 kilograms of cocaine was, therefore, not meant to be consumed in the UK.
In his submission for mitigation, lawyer for Nayele told the court she came from an underprivileged home and married a spare parts dealer at Ghana’s famous spare-parts market, Abossey Okai.
She has three children, the first being 16 years old. Her marriage broke down and she has been a single mother.
According to the lawyer, Nayele came into contact with powerful people in 2004 and her life changed dramatically. She travelled extensively with influential people as their companion.
The lawyer said Nayele has remained connected to powerful people in authority who are currently in power in Ghana.
She was forced by circumstances to engage in transporting drugs to support her newly attained high-class lifestyle and to take care of her three children, the lawyer said.
