A former contestant of the 2019 Miss Commonwealth beauty pageant has narrated her alleged torture at a shrine in Koforidua in the Eastern region.
The third runner-up, Nana Ama Essien said organisers of the event took her and some others to a shrine to fish out who stole ¢500 that got lost in the pageantry’s house.
On getting to Torgbe Sitor’s shrine, together with nine others, they were presented with eggs to undergo a ritual that would reveal the face behind the thefts in the pageant house.
“We were presented with eggs which we were instructed by the chief priest to throw into the air and allow for a free fall on a hard surface. Anyone whose egg failed to break would be deemed guilty of the theft,” Nana Ama narrated.
She said her egg turned out to be a cooked one as such, failed to break on its fall, making her the guilty one, according to Torgbe Sitor.
She said that she was beaten with a cutlass and suffered some injuries
She passed through the Hitz FM studio to tell her story.
