Traditional priests to pray against road accidents


Akropong (Ash), May 26, GNA - The chief priest of the Bosom Ampeadwa Shrine at Asante Akropong has said he would organise a traditional prayer session on June 28 to seek spiritual protection for vehicles plying the country's roads.

The session will bring together traditional rulers and famous fetish priests who will perform rituals to remove "all satanic activities on the country's roads."

In a statement issued in Kumasi to console the Catholic Church and the relatives of those who died in the recent accident at Akropong, Komfo Badu, the Chief Priest of the Ampeadwa Shrine, said the spate of accidents on the country's roads were "uncalled for".

He mentioned some of the famous traditional priests and shrines which will take part in the prayer session as Komfo Kyei, the Chairman of the Ghana Psychic and Traditional Healers Association, Afrikania Mission, African Traditional Worship (Komfo Abass group) and Save Africa Foundation, an international NGO.

Komfo Badu said prayers would be said for drivers, transport organizations, the police, mechanics and other people involved in the transport industry.
