A 44-year-old woman, Eyii Akuvi has died after she was bitten by a snake in her private part. The unfortunate incident happened in Dambai, Krachi East district, Ghana, as the woman and her husband were returning from the farm.
Eyii had gone into the bush and squatted to ease herself when the snake bit her private part. She is said to have screamed out in pain, drawing the attention of her husband who had been waiting for her by the roadside.
Instead of the man rushing her to the hospital for treatment, he concluded that the snake bite was a spiritual attack. He reportedly put his wife on a bicycle and rushed her to a priest for spiritual and herbal treatment. She died at the priest’s home during treatment.
