Few days ago, Ghgossip.com broke the news about a former Miss Commonwealth Ghana participant called Mrs Essien who was tortured by a fetish priest over a missing ₵500 during their stay in the ‘pageantry’ house.
The lady herself shared her harrowing experience on social media which was later spread and amplified by UK-based Ghanaian blogger, Chris Vincent Agyapong.
Here’s her account in full in case you missed it.
“I contested for Miss Commonwealth Ghana which was held of the 7th september. During our stay in the pageant house,one contestant’s 500 cedis got missing, my SIM card got chewed and my mobile money pin code got changed.
The pageant is over and I made it to Top 5 and this automatically means I have a contract with them. I was called by the CEO on Sunday 6th October to come to her house on Monday Morning to talk about my trip to UK.
I got to the CEO house and she said we going to koforidua to find out who took the money. We got to koforidua and mind you it’s a juju man’s house. A very big house with 2 different fence wall .
We were 10 in number and the juju man gave us an egg to with powder to throw if you are innocent yours will break but if not yours will turn out cooked I did and mine turned out cooked.
I was asked to naked myself by the juju man and he started beating me with Cutlass and put my finger into a boiling oil after given an egg to swear not to tell any third party if I do I will die.”
In a new update, the priest at the centre of the whole saga, Torgbe Shito has denied any wrongdoing in the foregoing case.
Speaking to Mike 2, Togbe Shito said Mrs Essien confessed to stealing the money after some spiritual incantations.
“She begged the organisers for the embarrassment but we did not beat her,” Togbe Shito told Mike 2.
Togbe Shito said he has no idea where she had the bruises from because to the best of his knowledge, he did not torture her.
Miss Essien has since been traumatised and is threatening to sue organisers of Miss Commonwealth pageant who hauled her to the shrine.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer of Miss Commonwealth pageant and the fetish priest who were arrested by the Eastern Regional Police for questioning have been granted bail.
