Farmer Jailed 10-Years For Attempting To Sacrifice Son For Money Ritual

A 38-year-old farmer and resident of Ayisakro, a community near Axim in the Nzema East Municipality of the Western Region, has been sentenced to ten years in prison for attempting to sacrifice his son for money ritual.

Kwabena Ebo was charged for trading of person contrary to sections 2(1) & (2) of the Human Trafficking Act 694 of 2001. The accused pleaded guilty to the charge and asked the court to be lenient with him.

Reading the sentence at the Takoradi Circuit Court B, Her Lordship Abigail Anima Asare indicated that the accused was guilty of the charges preferred against him and as such, deserves a stiffer punishment to serve as a deterrent to others.

The prosecutor, Robert Inspector Yawson, told the court that the accused on Thursday, March 3 offered to sell his 16-year-old biological son (name withheld) to one Francis Odasani, who is popularly known as Nana Tano Kwaw, a renown fetish priest in the area for an amount of GH¢500,000.

The fetish priest told Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the host of the Omanbapa morning show on Connect FM, after the sentence that he was pleased with the court for the punishment.

“I think it is a good punishment. I saw how remorseful the accused was in the courtroom but nothing could have saved him at that particular moment. He will learn his lessons next time,” he indicated.
