Sule Habuga, a Beninoir who has lived and worked as a fetish priest for about 40 years, was arrested by the power of the Holy Spirit after a failed attempt to ‘kill’ the out-going Sefwi-Wiawso Area Head, Apostle John Obeng Kesse.
The incident happened when the Area Head, Apostle John Obeng Kesse was officiating the dedication of the Graceland Assembly church building in Ackaakrom District of the Sefwi-Wiawso Area on December 19th, 2019.
Sule Habuga, who has now given his life to Jesus Christ, confessed that he purposely went to the church service to challenge Apostle J. O. Kesse. According to him, he spiritually shot the Area Head three times and threw other spiritual weapons at him but none could hit his target. After several unsuccessful attempts, the popular fetish priest decided to run away from the auditorium, but he could not escape, due to the presence of the Holy Spirit. He indicated that, he was trapped by fire at the gates which, he said, was also around the entire church building.
The Area Head who had had an intuition about the whole development made an altar call in the middle of the service. However, nobody responded to the call. According to reports, the Area Head specifically walked to this unknown person (Sule Habuga) who was in “Rasta hairdo” and told him to give his life to Christ. Realising that he has been overpowered by the Holy Spirit, Sule knelt down to accept Jesus Christ and was prayed for. During the prayers, the evil spirits began to manifest violently, but with the help of some pastors and elders, he was overpowered and fell to the ground powerlessly.
Later, when he was given water to drink, he vomited a copper ring he had swallowed long ago. He was baptised by emersion after the church service had ended. When he was coming out of the water, Sule had a supernatural encounter of an opened heavens, and according to him, he saw many people in shiny clothes happily moving about.
He then gave out his idols and amulets to be burnt by Overseer Robert Dwumah, the District Minister of Ackaakrom District, and some elders. He has since been baptised in the Holy Spirit and fellowships at Graceland Assembly.
Sule now shares his newfound faith in Christ and the peace that he is enjoying. He stated: “Now I don’t walk in fear any longer.”
