The mad sakawa boys are believed to have lost their senses in the bid to make money the quick way
Two young men suspected to be ‘sakawa boys’ have been spotted roaming the streets naked, with one of them brandishing a live snake believed to be meant for money rituals.
The magical money-making activities as well as the luxurious lifestyle of fraudsters commonly known as ‘sakawa boys’ is no longer news. And it is believed that the two boys may have lost their minds in their bid to make money the quick way.
The mad sakawa boys were seen making some ridiculous dance-like displays on the road, with the crowd who were attracted by their disgraceful ‘shows’ picturing them with their cell phone and other types of cameras.

Sakawa is a widespread practice in Ghana which combines modern internet-based fraud practices with traditional rituals. It was initially referred to specific online scams but has since broadened to include all types of online frauds and scams mainly targeting foreigners.
The above incident however, is just one out of the innumerable times fraudsters have landed very unfortunate and unimaginable conditions, especially that of madness, in their bid to get rich through foul means. Some of them even end up losing their lives in the process.
Recall that one of such persons in Ghana had lost his sanity early last year, after reportedly refusing to complete a part of the money-making ritual which required him to sleep with a mad woman.
