Barber jailed 12 years for defilement

A 19-year-old baber, Atsu Agbemenya has been sentenced to 12 years imprisonment with hard labour for defilement and abduction of a 14-year-old girl.

The accused, Atsu Agbemenya was sentenced on June 7, 2022, by the Sogakofe Circuit Court presided over by His Lordship Isaac Addo.

The convict initially pleaded not guilty to the charges when he was arraigned before the court.

However, after a full trial, he was found guilty of the two charges and sentenced to serve a prison term of 12 years for defilement and one year for abduction to run concurrently.

That means, he will serve 12 years prison term in hard Labour.
