28-year-old Ghanaian man, Kwado Kumasi was reported to have turned into a cat after sleeping in a coffin for seven days in Ashante Bekwai, Ashanti region, Ghana.
Kumasi and his friends, Yaw Mensah, 37, Kwame Osei, 26, were reported to be popular Sakawa boys (Ghanaian cultists), visited a sorcerer identified as, Mallam Kantanka in order to perform rituals for them to become rich overnight.
According to Yen.com.gh, Kumasi volunteered to be the first to sleep in the coffin while others waited for their turns. The sorcerer was later nowhere to be found after the shocking event – a development which convulsed Kumasi’s friends to bring in the police.
The Asawinso district police commander, Richard Boahen who confirmed the shocking development says Mallam Kantanka has been invited for interrogation. Mallam Kantanka confirmed the report of the two complainants but said the spirits gave the two seven more days to perform some rituals to bring Kumasi back to life.
Following checks by the police at the shrine, a cat and an amount of money were found in a coffin in which Kumasi had slept for the rituals.
