A-30-year-old fast-food joint operator, Kwabena Ntow Kwakye says he has not engaged in any sexual activity for the past two years for fear of going mad.
Narrating his ordeal to Mame Akua on Abrabo, Asempa FM’s programme, Kwabena Ntow explained that his refusal to have sexual intercourse is as a result of a blood covenant he had with his lover, an action he now regrets.
According to him, he entered into a relationship with a lady he met at their village but had to travel down to Accra after years of courtship to seek greener pasture, in the absence of a decent job at the village.
After some hustling in Accra, Ntow started operating a fast-food joint, popularly known as “check-check”, with his little savings.
When business was booming, he rented a room and invited his lover from the village for a visit.
While in Accra, Kwabena Ntow said, the lady pestered him for a blood covenant in order to give her the assurance that he was never going to have any sexual intercourse with any other woman apart from her.
He said, it took him about a month to finally agree to her wish because he was not ready to lose her to any other man.
According to him, he and his lover decided to cut the tip of each other’s thumb with a blade, suck the blood and further rubbed their wounded thumb together as they vowed never to cheat on each other, adding that they swore that flouting the vow will result in the offender going mad.
However, he expressed worry that even though their love grew stronger after the covenant, he started battling terrible nightmares, resulting in wet dreams all the time.
“Any time I dream, I see myself having sex with an old woman in a big stream, which I am not able to resist until she has finished with me,” he described the dream.
He noted that, it did not take long after the blood covenant for the lady’s relatives to send a message to his relatives that they will never allow their daughter to marry him.
However, they did not explain their decision, he said.
Though they are separated, Ntow said for the past two years, he never had any sexual relation due to the oath as he is scared of going mad if he should go after any other woman.
Meanwhile, the uncle of the lady in question said on the Abrabo programme that he finds it difficult coming to terms with the man’s position. Though he did not support the separation, he disclosed that his niece has already found a new lover, and therefore wonders the agility and potency of the oath.
The father of the young man says he has now turned an alcoholic after being devastated by the son’s action. He told Maame Akua on Abrabo that he was more worried after fruitless attempts to get the lady’s family to rescind their decision.
Prior to the news that the girl has gone in for another lover, the two love birds were said to have visited a self-acclaimed man of God to revoke the oath.
Kwabena Ntow kwakye is still scared of the consequences of the oath even though he is well informed that his girlfriend has moved on with another man.
