A Ghanaian Soldier is laughing at the wrong side of his mouth as he has been arrested for having an affair with a 14-year-old girl at Burma Camp, Accra.

We are told the said Soldier following his arrest has been arraigned before the court and charged with defilement. He, however, pleaded not guilty.

The Court presided over by Mrs Adelaide Abui Kadey, remanded the Soldier identified as Okyere into Military custody to reappear on January 27.

From gatherings, the complainant is a 53-year-old labourer of the Ghana Military Police residing at Burma Camp, Accra.

Below has the very information on why he the Military man was arrested and brought before a court.

The prosecution said the victim is a 14-year-old JHS Student, living with the father who is the complainant in the case.

Detective Sergeant Aniagyei said Okyere was also residing at Burma Camp and that the complainant and Okyere worked in the same Regiment and were very good friends.

The prosecution said between July and September last year, Okyere took advantage of the friendship between him and the complainant and paid visits to the complainant’s house.

He said whiles the complainant was away, Okyere enticed the victim into their room and had intimate intercourse with the victim in a sofa chair.

The prosecution said on another occasion, Okyere made love with the victim on the complainant’s bed.

He said not satisfied with the intimate advances, Okyere took the victim to a nearby bush about 200 meters away from the victim’s house and had an affair with her.

The prosecution said on December 15, last year, the victim’s elder sister questioned whether she was a virgin and the victim denied being one.

This, the prosecution said made the complainant suspicious and he asked the victim who broke her virginity and she mentioned Okyere as the one who had been having sexual intercourse with her.

He said on December 16, last year, the complainant reported the matter to one Military Police and they arrested Okyere who was detained in a guardroom.

The prosecution said the Military Police issued a medical form to the complainant to seek treatment for the victim at any government hospital.

The prosecution said a medical report was submitted on the victim after medical examination on January 2, this year.

He said later, the complainant, the victim and Okyere were brought to the Domestic Violence and Victim’s Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service in Accra by the Military Police.

Coronavirus: Over 1,000 Positive Cases Recorded At The Kotoka International Airport



As of January 24, 2021, the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) had recorded 1,085 positive cases of covid-19.
Out of that 41 per cent were Ghanaians, while 59 per cent were non-Ghanaians.

Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, made this known at a press briefing in Accra on Monday.

Outlining the steps to be taken to curb a further surge of cases, he said the Food and Drugs Authority had approved the use of antigen testing to ascertain the degree of community spread in hotspots.

Dr Kuma-Aboagye added that antigen testing would also be conducted for suspected cases in schools and workplaces, as well as health facilities when workers are exposed.

Also, public health laboratories would offer a 24-hour service.

The Ghana Health Service boss also disclosed that a few cases of the United Kingdom variant, as well as that of South Africa, had been recorded at the airport, which was from air travellers.

But, no case of the new variant has been recorded at the community level.

What is worrying, Dr Kuma-Aboagye said, is that all the 16 regions in Ghana have reported active cases as of January 22.

He added that the number of people who were falling severely and critically sick was worrying.

“About 32 per cent of people testing positive are actually falling sick,” Dr Kuma-Aboagye bemoaned.

It’s Illegal To Give Your Children To Someone To Care For Them According To Ghana’s Laws : Gender Ministry



The Gender Ministry has said that it’s totally wrong to give your children to someone else to take care of them for you.

The ministry says according to Ghana’s laws, it is illegal to do so.

It is common practice in Ghana for poor families to offer their children to others to take care of them while the children in turn provide domestic assistance to the caretaker family. There is often no documentation covering the arrangement. Despite common knowledge that most children offered under such arrangement suffer abuses, the practice has largely remained in place in many parts of the country.

Speaking to Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Tuesday, Deputy Director and Head, Central Adoption Authority of the ministry Stephen Dombo said it is also wrong for people to nurse pregnant women just so they could adopt the babies.

“It’s illegal to take your child and hand him/her to another person to take care of him/her. You bring the child to the social welfare.

“There are people who’ll encourage some young women to carry their babies and adopt after they deliver and that’s illegal. I feel that people need to be educated. If they’re educated, they’ll not do the things they’re doing. Example, if you pick an abandoned child, you don’t keep the child, you report to the police,” he said.

The development comes on the back of the baby harvesting syndicate which was busted last week.

Investigations by the Medical and Dental Council and the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) led to the arrest of some doctors, nurses and social workers in the illegal act of baby harvesting’ and ‘human trafficking’.

A joint statement revealed that the investigations were carried into the illegal activities between the periods of June to November, 2020.

As a result of these investigations, two medical doctors, two social workers, four nurses, two mothers and one traditional birth attendant have been arrested so far and are on bail pending further investigations.

According to the statement, Dr. Hope Mensah Quashie was arrested On Thursday, December 31, 2020. Dr. Mensah Quashie who works with the 37 Military Hospital was arrested at his private health facility named Susan Clinic located at Lartebiokorshie, a suburb of Accra. He allegedly sold the first baby boy to the team for an amount of Thirty Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC30,000.00) in October, 2020.

He was arrested with three nurses who worked at his facility namely Sylvia Awuseh, John Adorey Effie and Angela Ametepe. They have been identified as his accomplices together with one Dede Gifty Anikpi, a traditional birth attendant at Bethlehem Maternity Home at Santoe a suburb of Kpone Katamanso, who referred the mother of the first baby to Susan Clinic.
