FORMER YOUTH Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Upper Denkyira East Constituency of the Central Region, Eastwood Dasmane, alias Akwasi Accra Town, has claimed that he had always been haunted by some spirits.
According to information gathered, the gods of River Offin at Dunkwa-on- Offin had compelled him to patrol the streets of Dunkwa at night.
Eastwood Dasmane, who on March 6, 2012 was caught by the driver of the chief of Dunkwa allegedly defecating into the Offin river, called the bluff of the chiefs when he was invited for questioning.
He rather went to a local radio station – Spark FM- to cast aspersions on the chiefs.
His action was said to have infuriated the chiefs who gave him three years after which he would face the wrath of the spirits of the river for defying their orders.
Dasmane, who felt untouchable in the area since the NDC assumed office, violently locked up the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) office in the town and threatened to deal with any staff who dared to enter the office.
He was said to have run to one Okomfo Serwaa, priestess of the river goddess, to intervene on his behalf after he had claimed that he was being haunted by the spirits.
Okomfo Serwaa then told Dasmane to confess his sin and apologize to the chiefs and people of Dunkwa before anything could be done to save him from the wrath of the gods.
It was in the light of this that Akwasi Accra Town, in the company of Okomfo Serwaa and some family members, stormed the Dunkwahene Palace last week Friday, September 19, 2014, to confess defecating into the river and subsequently apologized for disrespecting the traditional rulers.
He was therefore ordered to produce six fully grown sheep, six bottles of Schnapps and an amount of GH¢1,000 before rituals could be performed for him to regain his freedom.
Eastwood Dasmane, who is eager to regain his freedom, presented the sheep on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, and was expected to carry one around his neck and walk a distance of about four kilometers in the Dunkwa township to the riverside Friday, September 26, 2014, for the rituals to be carried out.
