A man is said to have shot himself to death at Agona Port near Diaso in the Central Region’s Upper Denkyira West District.
The deceased, only identified as Divine, is said to have shot himself after spiritually fortifying himself against gunshot. He was in his 30s.
The deceased allegedly shot his ankle first, then his ribs, but the bullet failed to penetrate both times.
Convinced that the juju had worked, he allegedly shot himself in the head at close range, causing the bullet to pass through to the opposite side of his head.
His body was transported to the Dunkwa On-Offin Mortuary for storage and an autopsy.
Yaw Boagyan of Kasapa News discovered that local youth frequently use juju to avoid being shot at.
The youth, on the other hand, have been warned that relying on spiritual protection from gunfire may prove ineffective.
Diaso law enforcement has launched an investigation into the incident.
