The priest added that he wants the government and traditional council to know that Nima residents have been treated unfairly and cautioned all parties involved to be careful.

“We are Ghanaians and we don’t want anything bad to happen but what they [police] did yesterday – people didn’t like it and doesn’t speak well of them.” the fetish priest said.
