A local priest reportedly succeeded in stopping the convulsions of Sangeeta Persaud, who he accused for being filled with the devil in Guyana. The 15-year-old girl died as the priest, family, and friends worked to rid her of demonic possession.
Neighbors have stated that the priest convinced them that the girl’s problems were spiritual not medical.
The priest, Ewart Cummings led a five hour prayer vigil that involved pressing her stomach and head while making her drink an anointing oil. Cummings insisted “I did nothing wrong. I just responded as pastor of the church. … Ungodly people would not understand certain things like driving out spirits.”
