A 33-year-old businessman, and a 29-year-old musician were on Friday remanded in prison custody by the FCT Area Court Lugbe, for engaging in homosexual acts.
The accused persons, Edwin Kelechi of Sauka Village and Khulid Ibrahim of Galadimawa Village Airport Road Abuja, are standing trial on a two-count charge of joint act and unnatural offense.
The prosecutor, Anigbo Paul told the court that the accused persons were arrested by the police on Jan. 21.
He said that Kelechi went to Ibrahim’s house at Galadimawa and had “carnal knowledge” of him, with a promise to pay him N2,000 after the act.
Paul said that Kelechi however did not keep to the agreement to pay Ibrahim N2,000, rather he paid him N1,000 which infuriated him and led to a fight.
He said the duo were arrested by the police while fighting on the street.
The prosecutor said that the offense contravened sections 79 and 284 of the Penal Code.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the accused persons pleaded guilty to the charges.
The prosecutor prayed the court to try the accused persons summarily since they admitted committing the crime.
The accused persons in tears, begged the court to tamper justice with mercy.
“We are sorry for what we did, it was the devil that lured us into this act. We will not do it again,’’ they both pleaded.
In his ruling, the Senior Judge, Gambo Garba, ordered that the accused be remanded in prison custody till Feb. 4, for sentencing.
10 most powerful women in Ghana today
Power comes with great responsibility and with a country like Ghana, this forms of responsibility is most unique and special especially when you are a woman.
With a new government in place and also the change in political power and other developments in the nation, we bring you the top ten all powerful women in Ghana today.
1. Sophia Akufo
Being the second female chief justice in Ghana, Madam Akufo comes up as the most powerful woman and legal brain in Ghana today as she heads the Supreme Court of Ghana thus ensuring that justice is respected in the country.
2. Charlotte Osei
She was one of the most powerful women in Ghana on YEN’s list in 2016 and still is! Madam Charlotte Osei, being the electoral commissioner has overseen one of Ghana’s knife-edged elections which saw Nana Addo Danquah-Akufo-Addo emerge as president of the 4th republic.
3. Rebecca Akufo-Addo
There’s no mention of Ghana’s powerful women without mentioning the name of the first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo. She indeed is the power behind the strength of president Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo.
4. Samira Bawumia
Forget the fact that she is the second lady in Ghana as her vicarious campaign messages one way or the other saw the NPP got elected into power. Samira Bawumia knows Ghanaians best and reaches out to them with words.
5. Gloria Akufo
Being the attorney general and legal adviser to the president, Madam Gloria Akufo comes along as the best legal brain which prosecutes and processes major cases against government and the state. Without her, Ghana would be ripped by several legal battles. She has power, real power.
6. Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey
You can’t mention powerful women in Ghana without mentioning the name of the foreign affairs minister. This special minister is the representative of government the world over who makes sure that the foreign policy of Ghana is strictly adhered to.
7. Adwoa Sarfo
Graced with beauty in such a rigorous political atmosphere as Ghana, 35 year-old Adjoa Sarfo is definitely one of the most powerful women in Ghana today considering the fact that she is the only female deputy majority leader in Ghana’s political history.
8. Akumaa Mama Zimbi
You might wonder why we included the name of the sex goddess in Ghana but indeed most of Ghana’s youthful population will never survive with he sexual therapy of this media goddess. With her ‘Odo Ahomaso’ show which attracts millions of viewers countrywide, there is no doubt in our mind that she is an authority in her own right.
9. Barbara Mahama
Ghana came to a standstill when the mob of Major Mahama was announced. Though we still share in the pain of his killing, one person who stood out so strong and powerful is widow Barbara Mahama. Following her gruesome experience, there is no doubt that her words now could move mountains and even shift minds.
10. Ursula Owusu
She is the communications minister in Ghana and what this means is that she has control over what we hear and see and how we hear them. She regulates the media landscape and makes sure that we are never shortchanged or cheated.
