Pastor Remanded For Abortion

Pastor Akwasi Ababio Boahen Franklyn whose plead was not taken would reappear in court on February 20.

Police Inspector D.D.T. Wayoe told the court presided over by Mr Abdul Majid Illiasu that the accused was the pastor of the King’s Vineyard Prayer Camp at Amanfrom in Akwatia.

The family of the victim, Abigail Acheabeah, lived in the same vicinity with the accused and did pay each other a visit.

The prosecution indicated that in October 2013, the accused visited the residence of the victim and met her alone on two occasions.

He then took advantage of the absence of the parents and had sexual intercourse with her and warned her not to disclose it to anybody otherwise he would curse her with the Bible.

Two weeks later, the victim could not have her menses and also started to feel pains in her abdomen.

She then reported to the mother and to the accused about her condition.

The pastor administered a concoction comprising some black powder, water and anointing oil to the victim to take which aborted the pregnancy leaving her bleeding.

The mother informed the victim’s father about what had happened and he reported the case to the police.

The pastor, on hearing that the incident had been reported to the police, fled from the town and efforts to locate his whereabouts failed but was eventually arrested at Anyinam on February 2.
