Man Cut Open His Stomach, Performs Surgery with Powder & Cotton
IN WHAT can best be described as pure supernatural display, a man, believed to be a traditional priest and spiritualist, has slashed his belly with a sharp machete and performed a self-surgery using just talcum powder and cotton wool.
The shocking incident happened at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi on Friday, during the first day of a two-week grand funeral rite of the late Asantehemaa, Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem II.
Togbe Kagyenapor, who is said to be well-endowed with spiritual powers, was bleeding profusely after he slashed his tummy wide open right in the full glare of a stunned audience. But the spiritualist did the unthinkable when he performed the spiritual surgery.
About 1,500 powerful traditional priests and priestesses had converged on the forecourt of the Manhyia Palace to showcase their spiritual prowess.
Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the overlord of Asanteman, was seated in state, surrounded by some prominent chiefs in Kumasi as the traditional priests and priestesses showcased what they possessed.
Virtually all the priests and priestesses at one time or the other performed mind-blowing miracles, including conjuring money and wrist watches.
But Togbe Kagyenapor seemed to have stolen the show as his display defied human logic. He just undressed himself and started cutting his bare stomach with a sharp machete.
Bleeding profusely, he then put a strange-looking amulet on his left hand and started inciting some incantations. He was also seen massaging his belly with powder and cotton for some minutes.
To the amazement of onlookers, the blood which was oozing from his opened belly stopped and within a few minutes later, the scar on his stomach disappeared.
Togbe Kagyenapor also conjured wrist watches and bundles of local and foreign currency, which he distributed to the curios spectators.
Virtually, all the fetish priests and priestesses that stormed the Manhyia Palace were given the rare opportunity to shake hands with Otumfuo and also console him following the passing on of his mother.
