A 25-year-old woman, Evelyn Detordzi, nearly lost her finger after wearing a promise ring her fiancé gave her.
According to Miss Detordzi, who resides at Sefwi Benumsuo in the Bodi District of the Western North Region, as is the practice, her lover put the ring on her ring finger.
“I don’t think he had any evil intention or invoked anything before giving me the ring because we were going to get married soon,” she said.
Speaking to Adom News‘ Augustine Boah, she said her pastor warned her not to wear the ring until prayers and fasting had been performed.
She, however, disobeyed and wore the ring but couldn’t sleep throughout the night as she was in severe pain, only to wake up with a swollen fourth finger on the left hand.
She said she cannot fathom why the ring was tightening up into her flesh and bones with the skin almost gone.
All efforts to remove the ring with soap proved futile despite help from a pastor who prayed and applied a cream on the finger.
She stated that they eventually succeeded in removing the ring at the hospital.
