Two friends including elder of Jehovah’s Witnesses Church dared the gods of Tanokwasi (Taakwasi) to steal gold ornaments from a shrine at Ahenkro a suburb of Nyinahin in the Atwima Mponua District of the Ashanti Region.
41 year-old Kwabena Kenneth connived with his friend, Yaw Tawiah who is an elder of Jehovah’s witnesses to steal the precious mineral which weighs about 70.2 kilograms undergoing spiritual purification at his grandfather’s shrine and has kept in his room for safety after the grandfather died 35 years ago.
Luck, however, eluded them when the gods staged a comeback and revealed Kenneth to a prophetess as the suspect after he was attacked by some strange illness, leading to the arrest of Yaw Tawiah by some family members.
He later led the family members to his Jehovah’s witnesses friend, Yaw Tawiah for being the man he gave the gods including the gold to for safe keeping.
The gods is said to had brought from the shrine 35 years ago after the demised of their grandfather who own that gods.
Speaking to Silver FM’s Akwadaa Nyame, Maame Ama Mmra who is the mother to Kwabena Kenneth explained that, Kenneth who stoled the gods together with Yaw Tawiah became ill and sent to hospital but couldn’t detect any infections so he was later sent to a prayer camp for spiritual healing where he confess of taking the gods.
He stole it and gave it to the second accused, Yaw Tawiah for safe keeping.
It was until 10th January 2020, that the prophetess discovered the gold has been missing when Kenneth was brought to her for spiritual consultation.
Kenneth in his dying bed in an interview with Silver FM’s Akwadaa Nyame admitted stealing the gods from the shirine but has since failed to produce it.
