The mother of an 11-year-old child whose father is accused of presenting her to a witch doctor for money rituals has stated that she had suspicions about the guy days before he was arrested.
The father, Evans Oppong, was arrested by police when the witch doctor informed them of the deadly plan. Before the cops arrived and arrested her father, who was sitting awkwardly during a fake ritual, the child had been waiting in a separate room.
In a viral video following the bust, the witch doctor can be heard declaring that he is a military commander who does not engage in ritual killings.
Evelyn Kemeh, the girl's mother, spoke to GTV for the first time since the news of the man's arrest broke. She stated that while Evans was used to requesting to have his child over for visits, there was something unusual about his most recent request. They don't live together, so the girl is used to spending weekends with her father when he visits Ghana from his base in Poland, she disclosed.
Evans allegedly asked the lady what day their kid was born during a phone chat, according to the woman. She said she felt nervous after ending the conversation, despite answering that she was born on a Thursday.
Madam Evelyn, who talked to GTV in Twi, claimed she even laughed over the bizarre phone conversation with the 11-year-old girl who joked that if her father is asking about her birthday, he might be preparing to use her for money rituals.
The answer made them giggle, according to the mother. Evans had requested that the child be brought to him, and she admitted that they had never spoken about it again. Evans is said to have told the young girl's mother that he wanted her to get measured for some outfits.
Evans Oppong, the suspect, is believed to have returned from Poland around a year ago and sought financial help from the witch doctor. According to some sources, he allegedly proposed to the witch doctor to sacrifice two of his twelve children for money rituals.
