Ghanaian, Isaac Andoh jailed 25 years in UK for raping two white girls – ghanapublisher.com

A churchgoing paedophile who ‘stole the childhoods’ of two little girls after subjecting them to a sickening campaign of rapes and sexual abuse has been jailed for 25 years.




Isaac Andoh, 43, was described as ‘every parent’s worst nightmare’ as he was put behind bars at Manchester Crown Court today (January 20).

The court heard how Andoh, from Openshaw, preyed on the girls from early 2018 to mid-2019.

He groomed one girl and ‘made her feel special’, taking her to McDonald’s for her favourite food before raping her.

He forced her to watch pornographic films with him and made her copy what she had seen on screen, the court heard.




The paedophile, who was a regular churchgoer, then went on to sexually abuse another young girl.

He told both victims that the vile abuse was ‘their secret’.

The horrific abuse came to light when a girl told a family member what Andoh had been doing to her.




Now, the ‘predatory, cunning and manipulative paedophile’ has been jailed for 25 years by a judge.

He was found guilty of 17 sexual offences – including three counts of rape – after a trial in January.

Prosecutor Nicola Gatto told the court how ‘steps were taken’ by Andoh to prevent the girls from reporting what had been happening to them.




“The defendant had said that this was ‘their secret’ and even made a ‘secret gesture’ with them where he would join their hands in the shape of a love heart”, Ms Gatto said.

Defending, Aisha Khan invited the judge to pass the ‘lowest possible sentence’ that she could for her client, who had no previous convictions.

But Judge Hilary Manley said that given the seriousness and nature of the offences, Andoh’s previously good character was of ‘no weight’ in this case.




Sentencing, Judge Manley told Andoh: “I have to sentence you for grave crimes which you have committed against two little girls.

“You were and are a predatory, cunning and manipulative paedophile – every parent’s worst nightmare.”

Of Andoh’s targeting of one girl, the judge told him: “You made her feel special, you took her to McDonald’s to buy the food she liked and then you began sexually abusing her.

“You told her this was your secret and even made a secret hand gesture with her.



“What you did to these two girls was and is unforgivable.

“You begged for these matters not to be brought to the police then brought it to a trial, but the jury saw through your ludicrous and cowardly defences.

“You have stolen childhoods and both of your victims have been affected by this.

“It’s abundantly clear to me that you have no remorse at all.”



Andoh, of Toxteth Street, was convicted of 17 offences.

The offences were: three counts of rape of a child under 13, three counts of assault by penetration of a child under 13, 10 counts of sexual assault of a child under 13 and one count of causing a child to watch a sexual act.




Andoh was made subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order – preventing him from having any unsupervised contact with a child – and was ordered to sign the sex offender’s register for life.

After the sentencing, Detective Constable Emma Cooper, of GMP’s City of Manchester division, said: “Thanks to the brave testimony of the girls involved, we have brought the perpetrator of these sickening attacks to justice.




“The psychological impact of crimes such as this can be considerable but we hope today’s sentence brings some degree of closure now that Andoh is behind bars – where he belongs.

“We will always take reports of this kind of crime extremely seriously and we’d encourage anyone who feels they have been the victim of such offences to get in touch with police.”

Published

on

The Former President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Agyekum Kuffour has wished Hon. Iddrisu Musah affectionately called Musah Superior well on his bid to become the next National General Secretary of the ruling party, New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The former Tamale Mayor who is currently the Deputy C.E.O of Ghana Forestry Commission paid a courtesy call on the former president at his Peduase Residence to officially inform him about his bid to contest for the NPP’s National General Secretary Position in the upcoming elections.

Musah Superior explained and detailed to the Ex- President the nature of his campaign themed “The Peoples’s Campaign”.

Ex – President Kuffour was delighted and fascinated about the nature and content of the Peoples’s Campaign.

He wished him well and blessed him.

Below are the 10 points plan of the Peoples’s campaign.

1. As GS, l will operate meaningfully at the Party HQ. The Party will no longer be managed from the private offices and homes of some persons. I will lead in running an active, professional and hugely political HQ. I will not run the Party in absentia.

2. I will mange the Party from bottom to top. This means l will pay serious attention to the local structures of the party. I believe that if we pay attention to the polling stations and resource the Constituency Executives, we will enhance our strength.

3. I will formulate and publish a six monthly ACTIVITY PLAN. This means that l will be busy in the country side on a formal work schedule. Regional and Constituency ACTIVITY PLAN will fit into the plan of the HQ.

4. I will ensure that officers, communicators, etc are REWARDED. It is absurd that we do not have an award scheme for people who have worked so hard for our victory. I ll ensure that we add value to our officers and volunteers. This is not rocket science!

5. Establish a WORKING welfare scheme for all officers of the Party.

6. Revive the demotivated Communications Directorate of the Party. All communicators at all levels must have a reason to continue to advocate for the Party. I ll put a plan in place to “look” after them. I will also support the Directorate to recruit brilliant communicators from the Regions and constituencies and offer them opportunities to feature on programmes “reserved” for certain class of persons. We must find innoviative ways of making our communication effective, convincing and pointful. This mean we must consult widely and use the wealthy brains of the Party people.

7. I will lead in constantly articulating the excellent work the NPP government is doing. We must articulate loudly our achievements and challenge any propaganda intended to undermine out grear efforts. Winning elections 2024 will depend largely on the achievements of our government.

8. As GS, l will ensure that ALL internal elections are free, fair, transparent and credible. ALL parliamentary primaries shall be OPENED to all. No needless disqualifications.

9. Our Party is run by Committees. (Steering Committee, National Executive Committee, National Council and the National Delegates Conference/Congress). As GS, l will become the most functional officer of the Party and shall work to the directions of the Committees.

10. Discipline brings stability and meaning into a person or institution. It teaches us to be responsible and respectful.The observance of well-defined rules in any organisation is critically important for the growth and development of the organisation. Discipline promotes good human behavior, stronger and focussed regime. We need to instil this important virtue into our Party. l will supervise a disciplined Party.
