A 15-year-old class six pupil is battling for her life after she was continuously defiled by an Elder of the Christ Apostolic Church in Akwaduuso, a farming community in the Atiwa District of the Eastern Region.
The suspect, Jonathan Okine is believed to have forced himself on the victim on different locations including, the farm, animal Pen and on a toilet.
The minor reportedly narrated her ordeal to her parents after she bled profusely last week. She was then rushed to the Abomosu health center where she was later referred to the Engresi Government Hospital for specialized treatment.
Narrating her ordeal to starr News’ Eastern Regional Correspondent Kojo Ansah, the victim said the suspect lured her to the locations while her mother was away from home. She was given GHC1 after each encounter.
Meanwhile, the Leadership of the church in the area led by the Presiding Elder, Isaac Ayetey, is reportedly pleading for an amicable resolution of the case.
A bottle of schnapps has already been given to the father of the victim by the church ahead of a meeting with the traditional authorities in the area.
