A fetish priest residing in Adjen Kotoku has been sentenced to three months imprisonment for failing to turn GH¢8,000 belonging to a trader into GH¢80,000.

The prosecutor of the case ASP Adiza Suleman narrated that the victim saw an advertisement on a local television channel in February 2015 where the fetish priest (Benjamin Doe) claimed to help businesses flourish.

The victim who lives in Prestea in the Western Region called the contact mentioned during the advertisement and Doe directed him to his house at Adjen Kotoku in the Greater Accra Region.

According to the Daily Graphic newspaper, the victim expressed interest in having her money doubled after listening to Doe. Doe then demanded GH¢8,000 to turn into GH¢80,000 and subsequently took another GH¢13,540 from the victim to buy some items “to pacify the gods’’.

“Doe failed to honour his promise and all efforts to retrieve the money proved futile. The victim reported the matter to the police and Doe was arrested on April 10, 2015," ASP Suleman said.

Benjamin Doe was also fined GH¢3,600 or serve an additional 2 years imprison if he fails to pay the fine.

The court presided over by Aboagye Tandoh said even though the fetish priest had paid part of the money, the sentencing was necessary to deter other so-called spiritualists who dupe people in society.
