A group of fetish priestesses stormed an Accra Circuit on Friday to demand the release of a colleague, who has been remanded by the court.

They claimed their colleague, Bernard Ayi Amegavi, has been on remand for the past three months.

The fetish priestesses dressed in their regalia, were not allowed to enter the court room, the Ghana News Agency reports.

Armed with small and short brooms, they stood behind the door to the court until the accused person was called and whisked away by security personnel.

On March 4, this year, Amegavi was arraigned for possessing a pump action gun, a pistol, a military uniform and two pairs of military boots, the military uniform had his name tag and a rank of sergeant, the GNA reports.

He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of possession of firearms and military accouterments without lawful authority.

Prosecuting Chief Inspector E. Afful told the court that the complainants in the case were policemen from the Mamprobi Police Station, the court remanded Amegavi into Police custody.

On February 29, the Tema Abbafoitse, who is also the National President of the Ghana Psychic and Traditional Healers Association, sent a letter to the Mamprobi police station to assist in tracing Amegavi for an investigation for holding himself as a member of the Association and practicing as a traditional healer.

The police complainants invited Amegavi to the police station for questioning.

Prosecution said during questioning, an informant alerted the Police that Amegavi had in his possession guns and he has been seen in a military uniform, the prosecutor said the police retrieved the gun and a pistol from Amegavi.

The following day, the police search his room and found the military ware.

The case has been adjourned to May 9.
