A twenty-two-year-old self-acclaimed spiritualist has been sentenced to 14 years imprisonment with hard labour by the Tarkwa Circuit Court for defiling a 14-year-old girl at Asikafoamatem, a suburb of Asankrangwa.

Moses Oppong was convicted after he pleaded guilty to the charge of defilement.

The Court presided over by Mr. Emmanuel Bart-Plange Brew, convicted Oppong on his own plea and sentenced him accordingly.

Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Faustina Celestina Anaman, told the Court that the complainant in the matter is the mother of the victim.

She said on October 22 this year, at about 6:30pm, the complainant together with her daughter who was two months and two-weeks pregnant, made a report to the police at Asankrangwa that in July, 2018, that Oppong lured the victim into a teak plantation near the Pentecost Mission House at Asikafoamatem under the pretense of breaking a spiritual death curse on her.

Inspector Anaman said the convict then told the victim to allow him to have sex with her, else the spirit will kill her and she obliged.

The prosecutor said Oppong took advantage and had sexual intercourse with the victim on three separate occasions resulting in the pregnancy.

According to Inspector Anaman, a police medical form was issued to complainant to send the victim to the hospital and the form was returned to the police, which confirmed that the victim was pregnant.

She said Oppong was subsequently arrested and detained for interrogation.
