Valentine’s Day is few days ahead and it’s expected that lovers spend it with joy, but it seems some individuals may spend theirs in real agony.
A native doctor in Sekondi in the Western Region was rushed to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital Wednesday morning over what residents suspect to be broken heart.
Paa Dogo, as the native doctor is affectionately called in Sekondi, according to residents, had fallen in love with a community nurse who was posted to the town about nine months ago.
As reports suggest, Paa Dogo first came into contact with the lady when she was sent to Paa Dogo’s place for healing.
According to one resident, Maame Pokua, the nurse found out that her boyfriend who resides in Accra was having an affair with her best friend. This, per the resident’s account, became unbearable for the nurse which she later tried taking her own life because of the heartbreak.
“She was acting abnormally at a point in time so we even thought she was going mad. A friend she made here sent her to Paa Dogo to heal her and help her overcome the heartbreak,” Maame Pokua stated.
Asked why she was sent to Paa Dogo, Maame Pokua said Paa Dogo is popularly known in Sekondi to cure people of heartbreaks and people with psychiatric problems.
“Paa Dogo was able to heal the nurse through herbal medicines and counseling. He then fell in love with the lady and was buying expensive items for her from his small native doctor business. He asked the nurse out and she agreed to date him,” she said.
Maame Pokua continued, “A few weeks through the dating, Paa Dogo went to the nurse’s place to give her pre valentine flowers only to find the nurse’s ex-boyfriend in bed with her. Paa Dogo dropped the flowers and immediately shouted ‘Aw Jesus, I’m dead.’”
At the time of filing this report, he was in coma and receiving medical care at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital intensive care unit.
