FETISH PRIESTESS numbering over 40 yesterday besieged the Accra Circuit Court to demand the immediate release of one Bernard Ayi Amegavi being held by the police for allegedly possessing firearms and military accoutrements without authority.

The priestess (Woyei) suspected to be from Ga Mashie, clad in their traditional white cloths, bare-footed and holding short brooms, cursed the police for holding the accused who is also a traditional priest, for over two months.

After a botched attempt to enter the court where the accused was being tried over the charges, the priestess moved to the frontage of the court, attracting public attention.

But the police whisked Ayi away into a waiting police vehicle with registration BA 1712 W, compelling the group to run after the police.

According to the group Ayi, 32, was not a robber.  They therefore wondered while the police could remand him for over two months.

Ayi had denied the charges of possessing firearms’ and military accoutrements without lawful authority.

It is the case of the prosecution that the traditional priest on February 29 this year at Mamprobi in Accra had in his possession a pump action gun and a pistol without authority.
