- Pictures and videos show locals of Sogakope parading a "dwarf god"
- Many flocked to the streets to catch a glimpse of the said spiritual being
- NAIJ.com believes this person is rather a 'dwarf' with a mental issue
Sogakope, a town in the Volta Region of Ghana, was thrown into disarray after some locals claimed they had arrested a "dwarf god".
A Facebook user, one Icon Joseph, shared photos and videos showing a group of locals parading someone they claimed to be a "dwarf god" around the streets of Sogakope.
In Ghana, as according to local lore, dwarfs (known as mmoetia in Akan) are considered "spiritual" beings and are often worshipped by some people.
In other parts of Ghana, they are said to live in the forest and are quite proficient in the use of herbs.
They supposedly specialize in working with nature spirits for healing body, mind and spirit and to address personal, family, social, financial and environmental issues. They can be playful, mischievous generally, or very cruel to evil doers and those who try to ignore them.
Thus, it comes as no surprise that the local would think they had arrested a "god".
However, a closer examination of the photos and video, shows that the "dwarf god" could not have been more than a disoriented 'little person' who might be in dire need of medical attention.
But this didn't stop people thronging to catch a glimpse of the "spiritual" feat for whatever reasons they deemed fit.
