A man and his household are currently ‘trapped’ in their faith after staying under lock and key for three months following a ‘direction of a spirit’ they worship.
Nana Adom who locked his wife, son and three daughters in a room says his ancestral spirit has revealed to him that death awaits his family hence the directive.
Nana Adom upon the directive of his ancestral spirit, has also closed down his drinking spot which served as the main source of income for the family.
The family who are natives of Kwahu Mpraeso in the Eastern Region live in a rented apartment at Kwahu Atibie also in the Eastern Region.
Investigations by Atinka News revealed that the first born of the family who completed Nifa Senior High School was the first to be locked in the room upon the so-called direction of the ‘spirit’. Sources close to the family who spoke to Atinka News revealed that the first born had her education truncated after her father locked her up in a room close to three years now. She, our sources revealed has been possessed by the spirit and currently under training to become a fetish priestess.
The last born, who was a student of Alice Biggs Junior High School was also denied the opportunity of writing the just-ended BECE Exams because her father believed that, she moving out of the room will cause her death.
A teacher at Alice Biggs Junior High School who spoke to Atinka news team on condition of anonymity revealed that she received similar reports but when the father was queried, he said his daughter was sick and would ensure that she reports to the examination centre to write the exams but he never honored his promise.
Further interactions with neighbours in the community, revealed that an earlier attempt by the Police to rescue the children proved futile as the man and children cried uncontrollably to be left alone for fear of being killed as the spirit has prophesied .
Reliable information picked from the Atibie Central Police Station indicates the case has been reported to the police but much can’t be done because it had to do with Spiritual Matters. Efforts are, however being made to rescue the spiritual prisoners .
