According to a close friend, Nanoh is a pastor, a reason he resisted all efforts and persuasion from his aging father to take a position, his father’s position, in the local Poro society; and that because of the constant pressure to join the poro society he refused to join, Nanoh explained and sought advice from his church members, causing members of the poro society to chase him to forcefully initiate him into the poro society.

Because they could not lay hands on Nanoh who had gone into hiding, his friend said Nanoh was declared wanted by the angry poro members who vowed to kill him for exposing poro society secrets to church members.
