Ghana: Stolen wallet turns into cobra
The thief who tried to extricate the reptile from his hand to no avail reportedly went to the owner of the wallet and confessed what he did.
According to Adom Online, the incident left people baffled after they watched as a wallet turned into a deadly cobra in the hands of the thief as a result of black magic.
It was gathered that the 27-year-old thief identified only as Mdu, had snatched the wallet from the owner, not knowing that he was playing with fire as the owner is a known witch doctor, and when he tried to open it to see what he got for his efforts, the wallet turned into a cobra that wrapped itself around his hand.
An eyewitness revealed that the terrified thief tracked the native doctor who was about to board a taxi and confessed that he stole his wallet and wanted to return it.
“He stole a wallet from an old man; people around are just saying the old man is a Sangoma (native doctor), but no one knows the man around. When he snatched the wallet he went behind a billboard; that’s when the wallet turned into a snake.
Now he tracked the man and found him but the problem is the old fellow is denying his wallet. He even produced a pouch like a wallet as proof to show that the snake wallet wasn’t his.
The snake is not biting him but it's stuck in his hands as he failed to throw it way; this is first-grade black magic."
"The police just come after a commotion but they ignored the case. I am not sure what he is thinking right now but if the owner denies the wallet, they will have to visit a popular local sangoma to cast out the spell,” the witness said.
