… As they blame the media, top officials over development.
The development of killing of human beings in the country in recent times by some individuals has raised serious concern and fear in the country.
As some attributing it to ritual purposes and accusing the security agencies, particularly the police of not living up to expectations.
This concern has also been expressed by some religious leaders in Agona Swedru, however, they vindicated the police and rather blamed the media and the relevant institution such as the National Communication Authority which is mandated to have oversight responsibility to check that the right thing is done on the airwaves, via radio and television, accusing it of not living up to its task.
The religious leaders, Rev. Martin Luther Yao Agbovi of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Agona Swedru, the founder and General Overseer of the Overcomers Royal Sanctuary Apostle Joshua Kobina Darko Spokwell as well as a spiritualist, Mallam Abdul Ganiyu of Wiase My Nsem Dooso Spiritual and Herbal Center all blamed the situation on the polarization of the media because of free speech, which they said has led to the occultic group and other unscrupulous people advertising themselves of being able to offer blood money to people who so desire.
According to these religious leaders, such groups or people should not be entertained on the airwaves because their activities turn to promote the killing of human beings for their so-called blood money.
They further alleged that some top officials, including politicians, may be part of the problem because of their quest to cling to power, and by this, they will do everything possible to hold on to that power, even if it will mean sacrificing human blood.
They however commended the police for been proactive by arresting perpetrators of such heinous acts anytime they have information about them, UI and also called on the public to assist the police in their work by offering them relevant information about such people, as they live in the society with them.
They stressed that police are not magicians but ordinary people as anybody else, and therefore can not know what is happening everywhere at the same time unless they are informed, and this can only come from members of the society.
In the last three years, more than thirty incidents of killings have been reported in the country, with some perpetrated by close members of the victims, especially husbands.
