The 14 year-old has been dating Meshach Abbbam for three years, according to the victim whose name has been withheld.

Bonney notoriously known in Awutu Obrakyere as someone who has been helping several young ladies abort unwanted pregnancies, according to Accra-based Adom FM.

The minor said Bonney, also known as Atongo, admitted her into his room and begun administering  to her concoctions as part of his usual routine for aborting pregnancies.

"He has a bottle in his room into which he pours an alcoholic liquid, he then puts into it some small tablets and shakes very well and gives to me to drink,” she said told Adom FM.

“After giving me the concoction, he covers my lips with his bed sheet and anoint my head with some of the same liquid,” she added.

The 14-year old further narrated her ordeal and the rounds of sexual bout the fetish priest subjected her to.

She said the Atongo slept with her at least five times a day: morning, afternoon and evening.

“I spent five days in his custody and in all he slept with me for at least five times a day, in the morning, afternoon and evening, there was a time that when I was sleeping with my boyfriend, he walked to me at dawn and ordered me out and had sex with me.”

The minor said the priest, who is also a herbalist, warned to kill or paralyse her if she dares tell anyone about the concoction and the sexual bouts.

She: "He consistently warns me that the concoctions are very strong and powerful and threatens to either kill or paralyse me or my mother if I name him and his girlfriend whom he loves very much if I dare name any of them when something happens to me after taking the concoction…and I am sent to Police station.”

“I was not allowed to go out, no one knew I was in the room…when I tell him I want to take my bath, he goes to bring a bowl and bucket…I stand in the bowl and bath and when I am done, he comes for the water and go to throw it away….”

The minor's parents caused the arrest of her boyfriend who in turn led them to house of the herbalist who was also arrested.

Awutu Breku Police Commander, ASP Samuel Amfo, said police rescued the minor and also arrested the fetish priest for kidnapping the fourteen year old girl.

"We were informed one Chris Bonney, a fetish priest and herbalist had kidnapped a JHS girl who had been impregnated by his 16-year old boyfriend and was preventing her from coming out of the room where she had been placed,” he said.
