Empress Dowager Sefwi Bekwai Nana Abena Aniwaa II warned that the time has come for everyone to unite and end the spiritual killings that are rampant in society once and for all. “I am very saddened by what is happening in this community.
These spiritual killings have happened many times, but this time we will not remain silent as assassins continue to take the lives of innocent people. “We don’t know what these killers want, we don’t know why they kill people just for money.
Let’s all stand up to fight this spiritual killing once and for all,” he said. The president of the Sefwi Customary Council, Bekwai Katakyie Afful, promised to do everything in his power to fight the killers.
“Sefwi Bekwai’s bad image is getting out of hand. We gather youths to serve as guardians. We will formally hand them over to the police commander so that they can operate according to the law.
We will not reveal their identity to anyone. We will give them the power to arrest anyone with questionable behaviour in society,” he added.
