Kasoa in the Central Region has been gripped with fear as seven people are rumoured to have lost their penises after shaking hands with foreigners in March.

The rumour has made national news as residents refuse to touch or be touched in the community. 

According to a UTV News report, seven such incidents have occurred within the past two weeks and the latest happening on March 24, 2024.

According to the report, a shoe seller operating in Kasoa found himself at the centre of this alarming trend when he purportedly had body contact with two individuals believed to be of Nigerien origin.

“A man who sells shoes at Kasoa under the overhead, two people who are believed to hail from Niger approached the shoe seller with the aim of buying some of his shoes. They asked for the price, and these two guys pretended as if they didn’t understand what the seller was saying. One of them got closer and made body contact with him and according to the seller, he felt like an electric shock in his body and realized his penis was missing after constant checks.”

He added that the suspects were apprehended and taken to the Kasoa C.B.D. police station and subsequent police interrogation revealed a confession from one of the suspects of masterminding the act and also claiming the ability to restore the missing manhood through incantations and chants. 

However, despite his numerous efforts, the victim’s manhood remained missing at the time of filing the report.

 He added that the suspects had suggested that they are around 40 individuals operating in Accra, engaged in similar activities.
