Rape Obscene

Samuel Ofosu, a 30-year-old evangelist, was remanded for a small amount of wee toffee.

A Koforidua Circuit Court in the Eastern Region has remanded a 30-year-old preacher Samuel Ofosu for allegedly supplying locally produced cannabis (wee) to his 43-year-old ex-girlfriend.

Evangelist Samuel Ofosu, the accused, lives in Akyem Kukurantumi, while the victim (name withheld) works as a trader in Koforidua.

Chief Inspector Owusu Ababio, the prosecuting officer, informed the court that on August 6, 2021, the accused invited the victim to his home to help him prepare for his mother's funeral.

The victim and her two children, ages seven and ten, went to the accused person's house on August 8, 2021, around 7:00 p.m.

After a few hours, the preacher asked the victim if she had frequent headaches, to which she said yes.

He said that a supposed herbal medication he acquired in Kumasi was effective for headaches, and he prescribed it.

He abruptly turned down the light and gave the victim three cannabis edible candies, one after the other, followed by a powdered substance delivered twice beneath her tongue for her to swallow.

After a few minutes, the victim began to experience acute nausea and vomiting, as well as agitation and anxiety, as a result of the chemicals' side effects.

Her two children, who were sleeping in a different room, rushed to their mother in an attempt to aid, but the accused shouted at them, chased them down, and locked them in their room.

The accused allegedly used a password to lock the door, preventing the victim from exiting the room to seek assistance.

The accused said he was transporting the victim to the hospital at 12:00 a.m., but when they arrived at the Police Snap Checkpoint in Kukurantumi, the victim told the police about her incident, which led to his arrest.

The victim was taken to Kukurantumi Community Hospital, while the offender was arrested and held in police custody.

Later, police detectives searched the accused's chamber and discovered several of the edible cannabis candies. In his clothing, a material presumed to be a narcotic drug was discovered, along with other chemicals in a similar container.

During questioning, the accused admitted to giving the victim three out of four cannabis-infused candies, as well as a snuff.

The victim was sent to the Eastern Regional Hospital in Koforidua as his health worsened, but was later transferred to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for further treatment.
