It was very shocking and fearing when a Sakawa boy at Asante Bekwai in the Ashanti region turned into a cat after sleeping in a coffin for seven days.
The young man was among three friends, Kwadwo Kumasi, 28; Yaw Mensah, 37, and Kwame Osei, 26, who had contacted a popular Juju man called Mallam Kantanka, at Sefwi Asawinso in the Western Region, to perform rituals for them to become rich overnight.
Kwadwo Kumasi, who is said to have known Mallam Kantanka for a long time, sacrificed to be the first to sleep in the coffin as part of the rituals, while the remaining two waited for their turns.
Later on, the sorcerer vanished as he notices that something bad and shocking has happened – the said development then disturbed Kumasi’s friends to report the case to the police.
The Asawinso district police commander, Richard Boahen who confirmed the shocking development says Mallam Kantanka has been called for interrogation.
Mallam Kantanka at the police station confirmed the report of the two complainants but said the spirits gave the two colleagues seven more days to perform some rituals to bring Kumasi back to life.
The commander added that the police are waiting to see Kumasi’s return, as promised by Mallam Kantanka, while investigations were still ongoing.
However, followed up investigations by the police at the shrine revealed that a cat and an amount of money were found in a coffin in which Kumasi had slept for the rituals.
