An Accra Circuit Court has sentenced a 29-year-old head porter to 60 months imprisonment for presenting a five-year-old girl for money ritual at Pokuase in Accra.

Isaac Gabianu kidnapped the victim at a public toilet in Accra and presented the minor to a herbalist at Pokuase for money ritual.

The herbalist, however, sent the victim and the convict to the Police.

Charged with child stealing, Gabianu pleaded not guilty.

At the end of the trial, the court presided over by Mrs Christina Cann found him guilty.

The court held that the prosecution at the end of the trial succeeded in proving the offence against Gabianu.

It, therefore, handed down a deterrent sentence.

The prosecution led by Superintendent of Police, Agnes Boafo, narrated that the complainant, Patricia Asamoah, was a trader residing at Mallam, Accra.

It said the convict was a head porter residing at CMB, Accra.

On April 3, 2023, at about 7:30 pm, the complainant went to the Charge Office of the Railway Police Station, Accra, to report her missing daughter.
