Ghanaontheglobe.com reports indicate that Police in Suhum have stopped residents of Amanase from burning down a shrine allegedly belonging to traditional priestess arrested over the killing of a 11-year-old boy for a money ritual.
The angry Amanase residents led by the traditional rulers of Amanase gathered at the shrine on Friday morning in protest ready to damage the shrine.
The chiefs indicated that it was their way of expressing their anger at the priestesses who they say has tarnished the image of the community after she was arrested on Wednesday in connection with the suspected ritual killing last week.
The two teenagers, Felix Nyarko and Nicholas Kini, were earlier on Saturday, 3rd April, 2021 arrested by the Kasoa Divisional Police Command following the 11-year-old Ishmael at Lamptey Mills.

The regent of Amanase, Osabarima Obengfo Addo Agyekum, issued a three-day ultimatum to the Inspector General of Police and the police service to furnish them with updates of the arrest made.
“It is only now that we’ve understood the gravity of their activities to the extent of taking a life in the name of giving money to the youth for that matter.”
The Assembly Man of Kyekyewere, Paul Som Abedi, said the protest by the residents was justified, he told Ghanaontheglobe.com,
“The whole world has heard bad news about Amanase… We need to be angry.”
“Fetish priests are all over the place in the whole district doing all kinds of things. We have to protest. It is a wake-up call for all the people in the district and the country as well.”
