Juaso (Ash), Jan. 11, GNA – A 20-year old self professed pastor, accused of defiling a seven-year old girl, has been remanded into prison custody by the Juaso Circuit Court.
        Kwasi Darkwah profusely denied the offence and was ordered to reappear on January 24.
        Police Chief Inspector Joseph Obeng told the court, presided over by Justice Alex Obeng Asante, that the victim lives with the mother at Boamadumase whilst the accused, who claims to be a pastor, resides at Patriensa.
       He said the pastor had gone to Boamadumase to spread the gospel and organize prayer sessions on December 4, last year.
       There, the mother of the little girl went to him for spiritual guidance and Darkwah was reported to have requested the woman to get him some drinking water.
       Prosecution said she hurried to the house and asked the victim to carry a gallon of water to the self-acclaimed pastor.
      He said when the innocent girl arrived with the water the accused seized her and sexually abused her.
      He warned her not to tell anybody about it and also promised her a new dress.
      Few days after the accused had left the town, the mother noticed some changes in the victim’s gaiety and that made her curious. Upon questioning, she told her everything and a formal report was made to the police.
     She was issued with a police medical form for examination and treatment by doctors and Darkwah was arrested.
