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.”
