A young “Sakawa boy”, identified only as Collins, has died mysteriously after going against a rule not to touch water set out for him by his spiritualist. YEN.com.gh understands that Collins, 24, and some of his friends had consulted the spiritualist to make them rich and also boost their music career.
The spiritualist, according to a report by Accra-based Adom FM, granted their request, but warned that as a consequence of the ritual, they should not come in contact with water for a period of time.
The report said Collins, however, defied the rule when he jumped into a swimming pool at the Awutu Forest Grove Hostel, where he and his friends had been drinking. Collins, the report added, died instantly in the water.
The Awutu Breku District Police Commander, ASP Johnson Hessay, who reportedly confirmed the incident, said police were still investigating the matter.
