A Ghanaian man who has conned countless people by posing as a fetish priest has come forward to explain his acts.
Coming from a poor family where his single mother had to care for him and his siblings, he chose to leave the village for Accra in search of greener pastures.
“The burden from home, and the fact that I couldn't afford to buy a piece of cloth for my mother after all her pain and sacrifices, drove me to scam,” he explained.
“In Accra, I realized life was much harder than I expected, and it was full of people who were also struggling,” he said in an interview with Happy FM.
He claimed that he went to this Mallam with his brother out of desperation, and that they later discovered that he had scammed them.
“After seeing what he did, I realized I could do the same and earn money to support my mother and siblings in the village,” he explained.
He went on to get the most powerful weapon he'd seen the man use, the mysterious black stone, and created posters to distribute. He also purchased a few pieces of red cloth and set up shop in a remote location.
The man said that shortly after doing so, he began getting phone calls from potential clients, and that was how it all began for him.
“I got a book and wrote down everyone's name, meaning, and payment amount because I didn't want to make any mistakes. For a while, the scheme worked well, and I was making enough money before I realized what I was doing wasn't wise, and I changed.”
He went on to say that he has changed his ways and would no longer defraud people.
