“We always get solutions to our problems anytime we come here,” one resident said.

A regent of Nogokpo, Torgbui Agbodzalu Amuzu, explains that gods of the land do not kill unjustly or harm innocent people but rather the gods punish unrepentant people whose families pay the ultimate sacrifice of death or get to permanently stay at the shrine. According to Torgbui Amuzu, the shrine was brought from Agbozume after a misunderstanding between the people and their chief known as Torgbui in the 1900s.
