|Devil Drug Monkey||statuary|| SCORES of customs officers have been hurt by a wooden "devil
monkey" cursed by an African witch doctor, it was revealed
The medicine man cast a spell on the hollowed-out statue after he
was caught using it to try to smuggle drugs into Britain from Ghana.
The 1ft figure - dubbed the devil monkey by customs staff as it
contained the Satanic number of 666 grammes of cannabis - was
stored in a warehouse at Dover, Kent.
But since then countless officers have been injured as they:
PICKED up painful splinters while handling the sinister statue.
GOT clobbered on the head by the monkey as it mysteriously
toppled off shelves, or
TRIPPED over it as it slipped into their path on the floor.
Customs spokesman Nigel Knott said last night: "It is cursed - and
very dangerous." The monkey, looking like a mother with four babies,
was posted to Britain by the witch doctor - a Ghanaian Rastafarian.
