AN 80-YEAR-OLD woman whose grandson was shot dead by the police at Sepe Timpom in Kumasi on Saturday, has invoked the spirit of the dreaded ‘Antoa Nyamaah’ river goddess and about 10 other river deities to strike dead the IGP, Paul Tawiah Quaye and other top police officers.
With the aid schnapps, pepper and eggs, Madam Yaa Serwaa also prayed the river gods to kill the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Augustine Gyenning and two policemen of the Buffalo Unit in Kumasi, who are believed to have shot her grandson, Kwaku Asante, 26.
Madam Serwah claimed that her grandson was not a criminal therefore the police erred by shooting him dead in public without justification, hence her decision to invoke the spirits of the several river deities to take revenge.
She insisted that the killers of her grandson did not deserve to live, adding that similarly, the IGP and the Ashanti Regional Police Commander should die because the rot occurred under their watch. In tears, Madam Serwah said she decided to curse the police officers because her family’s reputation had been ruined by the police’s claim that Kwaku Asante was an armed robber.
