Strange coffin spotted at Nkoranza EC office

Residents of Nkoranza in the Brong Ahafo Region experienced the shock of their lives on Friday morning when they awoke to news of a coffin positioned in front of the Nkoranza Electoral Commission (EC’s) Office.

It is unclear how the coffin found its way into the compound of the EC but the coffin contained a bottle of schnapps, black and red cloths and a dead fowl.

President of Nkoranza Youth Association, Nana Nyarko Ababio who spoke to Adom News’ Koofori Bossu Denkye said they suspect some aggrieved residents may have placed the coffin there in an attempt to invoke fresh curses on the district level elections for Nkoranza North and South Districts.

“We have no idea how this coffin got here. I think some youth who want to curse the election are behind this act,” he said.

The emergence of the coffin at the compound shook the foundations of the town and drew a large crowd to the EC’s office.

Nana Nyarko Ababio said none of the EC officials were in the office when the incident happened.

Residents have set the coffin ablaze.

The Youth of Nkoranza in the Brong Ahafo Region, have reversed a curse they invoked on the Electoral Commission (EC) in the area, barring them from conducting the District Assembly Elections there.

The youth invoked curses and banned all political activities to compel authorities to act in ensuring that their monies are refunded.
