According to the teenager, she was sent to collect Ghc10 from the man popularly known as Togbe Agordzo to enable her travel to her parents at Banda in the Northern region for vacation and that he asked her to come for it in his house at 6 O’clock that evening, to which she obliged.
“When I got to his room, he showed me the Ghc10 note but said he would only give it to me if I allow him to sleep with me. By then too, he pointed to a cutlass and a club, threatening to kill me, should I resist and also tell anyone about the ordeal,” the timid looking girl recounted.
Meanwhile the Peki district Police commander, DSP Mattew Asante, who led his men to arrest the Presbyter said a medical form has been issued to the victim to attend hospital as investigations begin into the matter.
