Three children, aged between 12 and 16, who are alleged to be practicing occultism in Takoradi, have been arrested by the police.

The leader of the kids, known as the ‘grandmaster’, who is said to be resident inTakoradi, and identified only as Musa, is currently on the run with another suspect following a police raid of their hideout.

The cover of the children was blown when one Auntie Kwansima hired a labourer to weed a spot behind her house to enable her to place a container there to engage in petty trading.

The container was originally located at Chapel Hill, a suburb of Takoradi had been broken into by thieves hence her decision to relocate right behind her house.

It is learnt that while the labourer was undertaking the weeding on Jan 28, he noticed that some people, who had adorned their bodies with strange and scary items, were hiding in the bush while seriously engaged in incantations.

He consequently alerted Auntie Kwansima, who, in turn, informed her husband about the weird occurrence.

The following day, around 11pm, five boys came back to the area and actually tried to force their way into the container, Auntie Kwansima and her husband gave them a hot chase and managed to grab one of them while the rest escaped.

He was handed over to the police, leading to the arrest of two others while the leader and another boy escaped.

Speaking to journalists after their arrest, one of the boys confessed that he was introduced into the occultism practice when he told his friend he wanted to be strong and powerful.

According to him, that friend later introduced him to as Musa, the ‘grandmaster’, who promised to help him to be powerful and strong.

The second culprit, also said he wanted a girl in another school, so a friend told him it and the friend introduced him to Musa, who promised to prepare a charm for him. He later met Musa and joined the occult group.

The quest to become a magician and get money quick landed the third culprit into the group.

All three culprits, whose names and schools have been withheld, are currently in the custody of the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) in Takoradi awaiting further investigations.

Surprisingly, none of parents of the kids had called at the police station since their arrest.

When the DOVVSU boss managed to contact the parents and advised them to come for the children and bring them back the following morning because they were juveniles, they declined.

According to the police, the parents simultaneously said they were fed up with the behaviour of their kids and that no matter what happened, they were not stepping a foot at the police station.

Meanwhile, the owner of the container is demanding a new container from the parents of the kids, arguing that whatever they were doing behind her container, and was, therefore, not willing to use the old container.
