A yet-to-be-identified young boy is about to lose his finger or life after wearing a friend’s ‘sakawa’ ring.
According to a reporter on Angel FM/TV midday news, the young man found the silver coloured ring on a table while they play a video game at Kasoa Iron City.
The reporter indicated that he picked the ring and wore it after he was attracted by its shine only to wake up the next day with a swollen finger.
All attempts to remove the ring meant for spiritual purposes have proven futile.
According to the source, family of the teenager has reached out to the ring owner’s family but information gathered has it that the owner is demanding a newborn baby’s blood to appease the deity before they can avoid the consequence.
It was also reported that the family has reached out to pastors after blacksmiths succeeded in breaking off part of it but it seems all hopes seem to be lost.
