A man has locked his wife and four children indoors following a spiritual direction from his ancestral spirits.
According to the man, who is from Kwahu Mpraeso in the Eastern region claimed he was directed by his ancestral spirit to lock his family to avert death.
The man identified as Nana Adom has also locked his drinking spot over this same directive from his ancestral spirits.
For three months now, Nana Adom has locked his wife and four children in their rented apartment at Kwahu Atibie in the Eastern Region with the intention of sacking away the spirit of death from their family.
According to reports, Nana Adom’s last born who was a student at Alice Biggs Junior High School wasn’t able to write the just-ended BECE examinations because he believes she will lose her life if he allows her to go out.
Nana Adom told his daughter’s teacher that she is under the weather when questioned on why his daughter couldn’t make it to the examination centre.
However, the police were alerted over this unfortunate incident but couldn’t rescue the family because they wept uncontrollably and pleaded with the police to leave them else they will be killed by spirits.
According to an eyewitness, Nana Adom also locked his first daughter who completed Nifa Senior High School for three years following a direction by the spirts and currently is under training to become a fetish priestess.
