Legit.ng gathers that the prosecutor, deputy superintendent of police, Agnes Boafo, narrated how Mba lured the minor to his shop and had sexual intercourse with her.

According to the DSP, the victim kept the ordeal to herself because the convict had threatened her to keep quiet or she loses her life.

The DSP says: ”The victim, mother, and Mba reside in the same vicinity at Nungua in Accra.

”In August, last year, Mba’s sister sent the victim to collect some sacks at her shop so she could pack some plantain leaves into them.

”On reaching the shop, she met Mba, who lured her into the shop and had sex with her. After the act, Mba warned the victim not to disclose the act to anyone else she would die.

”Mba became so close to the victim afterward and her mother became suspicious of their relationship.

”When the victim’s mother questioned her over the said relationship, the victim let the cat out of the bag and a report was made to the Domestic Violence and Victim’s Support Unit, Nungua.

”The mother was issued with a medical form to seek medical attention for the victim and based on the report, the police arrested Mba.”
