Spiritual calabash found in over 70-year-old tree at Tema
A strange calabash has been discovered in an over 70-year-old tree
after it was cut down at Tema Community two.
A resident whose name was only given as Kwabena decided to cut
down the tree which was becoming a threat to human life.
Kwabena told Adom News the roots of the tree were extending
and growing into the ground.

He explained he contacted the appropriate authorities to secure a permit
before cutting down the tree and afterward, hired a chainsaw operator.
After falling the tree, Kwabena said he decided to cut them into smaller
logs and that was when the calabash which was rotting away was found.
Eyewitnesses rushed to the tree to catch a glimpse and also take pictures,
however, the calabash vanished into thin air before they could
even complete their photoshoots.
One Sisi Yaa, who owns a shop close by could not hide her joy after
the tree was finally cut down.
According to her, she has been trading under the tree for almost 35 years
yet could not boast of any profit made from the business though she
could not ascertain if that had anything to do with the tree.
