The stool elders of the Tema Traditional Council are currently locked up in a crunch meeting to find solutions to recent mysterious deaths in the community, which have compelled residents there to be taking spiritual baths at the seashore to avert a supposed curse.

The baths are being taken on the directives of a chief priest to reverse a “sakawa” curse, which, apparently is the cause of the recent unexplained deaths of nine people in the Tema Newtown area.

The frightful residents are charged GHS1 each for spiritual fortification at the hands of the chief priest who takes them through certain rituals to pacify the gods.

But the Stool Secretary to the Tema Traditional Council, Nii Armah Suponu, has entreated the general public to disregard the orders of the chief priest.

According to him, the stool is equally worried about the deaths and will find a better solution to the problem.

He told Class FM on Wednesday, 7 November 2018 that: “The Traditional Council wishes to inform the general public that we totally dissociate ourselves from the so-called instruction that is going around asking people to go to the beach and bath in the sea”.

The Council, he said, “Has never asked anybody to pay a dime to anyone”.

In his view, the situation is being used to fleece the residents. He has condemned and promised the people that the Council will deal with the matter.
