EDWARD OBENG TOKORNOO
Edward Obeng Torkornoo was born on 2nd February 1897 at a village called Adzato in the Keta disctrict of the Volta Region of Ghana, he completed his education in Koforidua in 1916 and from there started his first work with C. F. A. O for a while and joined the civil service as a customs officer in 1924 in Accra. In 1931 he was transferred to Ada and then to Takoradi where he stayed for 34 years, then in 1921 he changed work and started a new job as a clerk at Akuse in the Eastern region of Ghana, then in 1922 he was tranfered from Akuse to Koforidua.
Edward Obeng Torkornoo was a Grand master of Mysticism, his life affected many noble men of African descent. He was a custodian of ancient Mystical knowledge and astute Astrologer who used Astrology in healing. It is believed that he first joined the Order of the Freemasons but later shifted and joined the noble society called the Rosicrucian fellowship and he established the society in Ghana in every community he stayed and help spread the Rosicrucian fellowship culture among many Africans. The story goes that one day as he closed from work going home he picked a small paper from the floor and this paper had the name and address of the Rosicrucian fellowship and he wrote an application for membership, that is how he became aware of this august society. The Rosicrucian fellowship teaches the laws of attraction and that when the student is ready the teacher will appear, perhaps his deep inclination for Mysticism attracted such attention. “To be or not to be that is the question”. His exceptional interest in Spirituality was very great and he developed himself to become a learned Disciple of the Rosicrucian fellowship, a position which has to be earned by persistent effort towards spirituality. Mr Torkornoo had about three wifes, but the story goes that when he became a Disciple he divorced two of them and lived with only one of them. He spent his last days in Takoradi.
There are many spiritual stories about him but the one I know is that one day while he was in his garden a vulture came to steal his chicken and he raised his index finger up and aimed at the vulture and fired a bullet to bring the vulture down. Another story about him says when the wife gave birth to his first son he was in a different city from them so every evening instead of going to visit them he thought it was too far to go, then he will lie down on his bird and off he will appear in the village where the wife and son stays. This is a reflection of what he was made of before he joined the Rosicrucian fellowship.
