Supernatural happenings terrorise Regent Street business
….Manager to call in exorcists
“This place got nuff strange happenings lately,” “I frighten,” and “Is a demon or a Baccoo in there,” concluded staffers of the Cell Works Digicel store yesterday morning as they gathered outside the 107 Regent and Light Street building.
Minutes earlier, fears of the supernatural had sent them scurrying out of the bottom flat business house screaming that something supernatural was attacking their work place and that it was operating from the ceiling.
With unsteadied eyes of fear and uncertainty some bit their fingernails as they sat outside recalling the events while Marketing Manager Stephen Hall contemplated calling in the exorcists.
Hall told Kaieteur News of mysterious sounds and of holes being punched in the ceiling by an invisible force. He said that this gave them a fright that something supernatural was taking place over their heads.
Prior tales of the building being home to a ‘Baccoo’ were ignored.
However, this drastically changed. Yesterday suspicions were at an all time high as the staff ran away leaving their posts unmanned and their personal belongings behind.
Hall said that he will be calling in the exorcists to rid the business of the apparent haunting that he says is now manifesting in the physical, destroying the ceiling and creating panic among staff members.
Hall told Kaieteur News yesterday that after reporting for duty at about 8:30hrs staffers reported hearing mysterious cat like cries. Sharon Joseph, a staff member confirmed that it was coming from the ceiling.
“After hearing the same sound, a continuous rumbling started in the roof then there was a sudden thud, and a section of the ceiling caved in. Suddenly we saw a piece of the asbestos fly out, creating a hole and adding to those already created.
The staff started screaming and running out of the store,” Hall recalled.
Fighting his fears, his initial reaction was to mount a chair, remove a section of the ceiling to investigate. “Me ain’t see nothing, no one or no animal and there is no sign of entry or exit anywhere so this is not a police matter; this a supernatural happening,” Hall said.
As a result, business was severely hampered for the day. The staff members were jittery and many refused to re-enter the building.
On May 1, the management of Cell Works Digicel store summoned the police and city constables to investigate an apparent attempted break into the business but on that occasion while the ceiling was damaged nothing or no one was found and nothing was missing.
“I first thought that it was thief but now we have ruled that out completely. After we searched the building completely this is supernatural,” Hall said.
When this publication spoke with several other businesses premises in close proximity their staffers said that they too have heard banging sounds from the ceiling at times and that prior to this unfolding, they too had heard stories of Bacoo in the building.
