Trouble is looming large in Anyako in the Volta Region after an old man by the name Ladzekpo was caught red-handed in the sacred forest of the Royal Badu clan invoking the gods to kill newly enstooled head of the Klevia Clan of Anlo, Torgbui Badu IV of Anyako.
Torgbui Badu, a world title winning boxing trainer known in private life as Paul Dogboe, was not the only person the said Ladzekpo wanted dead, but indeed the entire male children of the Royal Badu household, apparently in a bid to wipe off the family.
Luck however was not the side of Mr. Ladzekpo as he was chanced upon by certain youth of the community in the forest, inciting the gods against the newly enstooled chief and his family.
According to eyewitness accounts and evidence of the fetish food he was offering to the gods, Ladzekpo could not argue against the accusations that he was there to incite the gods to kill.
He was consequently arrested and taken to the Police station where he was put behind bars, pending a court case.
According to traditional Anlo custom, to invoke the gods to kill is to offer them the food they don’t like which makes them angry, upon which they will strike an intended victim.
The mission of Ladzekpo as he was heard by eyewitnesses was for the gods to kill Torgbui Badu IV and also all male children of the Royal Badu family, in a clear attempt to wipe them out of the surface of the earth by sacrificing wrong food to the gods.
