A 19-year-old boy is on the brink of losing his finger, or his life for wearing his friend’s ring made for spiritual purposes at Iron City, a suburb of Kasoa in the Awutu Senya East Municipal Assembly.
According to close relations, the victim reported that he found his friend’s ring lying on a table while they played video game at Kasoa Iron City.
According to the victim the sparkle from the silver ring attracted him so he picked and wore it overnight, only to wake up with a swollen index finger.
All efforts to remove the ring proved futile, as blacksmiths only succeeded in breaking off part of the ring.
It is said the family of the teenager have reached out to pastors and doctors, but all hopes seem to be dashing out.
What is beyond the resident’s comprehension is how the ring is outgrowing into the teenager’s flesh and bones.
Information gathered indicates that the owner revealed the ring is resistant to water, as ordered by his spiritual advisor.
It is also reported the owner demanded a newborn baby’s blood to appease the deity to avert the consequence.
