”If you can’t drink blood, you can’t be like us”
A video of suspected internet fraudsters (Yahoo boys) in Ghana bragging about doing rituals for money, has raised concerns among residents in the Offinso region.
There have been calls for urgent action against the canker of money rituals popularly known as Sakawa.
In a viral video, a group of young men could be seen driving a convoy of luxury cars while saying; “if you can’t drink blood you can’t be like us”.
According to residents, the trend of young men buying luxury cars when the source of their wealth cannot be ascertained has become the order of the day in Offinso. They said some of them are seen moving naked while carrying caskets at night.
Police are reported to have said that it would be difficult to arrest the young men with luxury cars without any evidence that they are responsible for the crimes for which they have been accused.
