The police have arrested three pastors who physically assaulted a priestess of the indigenous Traditional Religion in Wiaga, located in the Builsa North Municipality of the Upper East Region.

The victim, Sakinatu Issahaku, who resides in the Sichaasa community of Wiaga, was brutally beaten by the pastors when she refused to surrender her deities and convert to Christianity. The assault left her hospitalized with injuries to her face, knees, and a dislocated arm.

According to the victim, the pastors, led by Pastor Donatus Asekabta, initially offered to pray for her and convert her to Christianity, but she declined the offer. When she resisted their attempts to take her deities away, the pastors became enraged and resorted to physical violence. One of the pastors even brandished a pistol and threatened to kill her.

The incident has shocked local residents, who find it surprising that individuals claiming to be men of God would resort to unprovoked violence and threats.
