40-year-old Philip Mensah is lamenting how life has been unfair to him after he chose the path of acquiring spiritual powers through a native doctor. The New Juaben, Eastern Ghana resident cried out to Ghanaian online newspaper Adom News over his inability to live life normally following the development.
"My desire is to gain powers that will enable me to discover hidden secrets like how to tell when one will die, one’s future, how to retrieve stolen items, how to make spiritual money, among many others, made me pay heed to the advice of Togbe Azakli who directed me to spend time with the dead in their broken tombs to gain the spiritual powers that I have been wishing for over the past 30 years.
"Now that I have the power, I cannot spend even two hours of my life without visiting a cemetery. I battle with different spirits, but I do not suffer any spiritual attack whenever I stay in my new home- cemetery.
"Life has become unbearable for me because I cannot even stay with the living and make money out of the powers I have. All efforts to stop this behaviour have proved futile. I am now living the life of the dead. I advise everybody to be cautious when it comes to issues of spiritualism, especially those that are not related to God."
