‘Angry gods’ demand five human sacrifices before commissioning of toilet project

A 32-seater toilet facility constructed for the residents of Ampabame No-1 in the Ashanti Region has become a white elephant.

The residents are unable to use the facility because a river deity has demanded 5 human beings to be sacrificed before it can be commissioned.

The priestess of the community serving the Tano gods, guardians of the Bomofia stream, where the toilet is located is said to have said the gods are angry with residents’ constant dumping of waste in the stream.

She also claimed that the gods are furious with the siting of a septic tank for the facility.

The Ampabame community self-help toilet project was started in 2005 in the Atwima Kwanwoma district of Ashanti. It was completed 15-years later due to financial constraints.

Assembly Member for the Area, Richard Ofosuhene commenting on the issue said the planned commissioning of the facility was unsuccessful due to the shrine’s demand for human sacrifice, and thus had to be locked up.

He disclosed his outfit will work with authorities and the traditional leaders to address the issue.
