A lot of things do happen in the spiritual realm which mere mortals like us can not see.
A powerful Ghanaian spiritualist, Mallam Khalifa has warned the public not to talk on the phone whenever they use the toilet.
Mallam Khalifa explained that the washroom is the dwelling place of demons hence they can easily monitor your calls when using those places of convenience.
He said many people have had mental problems in this country as a result of making phone calls in the toilet room.
According to Mallam Khalifa, God has assigned angels to protect each person but the Holy Koran teaches that when one enters the toilet or the bathroom, the angels wait at the door because the toilet and bathroom are dirty places.
He added observed that since the toilet is a filthy place, demons prefer to hang out there.
‘In the toilet or bathroom you are on your own and the only way to avoid demons is to keep quiet because if you talk you invite the demons to yourself and they can make you go mad’, Mallam Khalifa stated.
On his part, radio evangelist, Reverend Gabriel Ansah of Adom FM’s N’asem University fame has cautioned Ghanaians against taking advantage of ‘free night calls’ offered by telecom operators because it is spiritually very dangerous.
Almost all the telcos in Ghana offer free or heavily subsidized night call rates to their customers.
But Rev. Gabriel Ansah argued that, the night could be bitter for those who use the service to discuss their future plans on phone at that time of the night.
The astute Ghanaian Bible scholar and pastor was reacting to claims by Mallam Khalifa that speaking on phone in the toilet and in the bathroom exposes people to demons, which cause madness in humans.
