A couple of hefty slaps from some operatives of Operation Vanguard at Akrokerri in the Adansi North District of the Ashanti region was just what it took for a Methodist Pastor to abandon his Christian faith and run for refuge under the dreaded Ashanti deity, Antoa, mynewsgh reports.

Rev. Shadrach Ato Mensah, one of the priests at the Obuasi Akaporiso Methodist Church was reportedly caught in the crossfire on Monday night when youth of the town clashed with soldiers who had arrested and handed over six persons to the police for engaging in illegal mining near the grave of the late P.V Obeng.

“Last night, the mother of one of my friends was beaten and she has been hospitalized; my father is a pastor at the Methodist church, they beat him up till he forgot that he was a priest so he threw away his bible and rained curses on them. If my father doesn’t make it to heaven, those soldier would be blamed”, one of the youth told Angel FM in an interview.

He said, “my father is called Shadrach Ato Mensah; he is a Methodist priest so he was returning from church when he was caught in the middle of the scatter; they have beaten him mercilessly forcing him to invoke dreaded curses on them”.

The youth pelted stones at the soldiers in demand for the release of the arrested illegal miners including an aspiring Assemblyman and an aspiring Unit Committee Chairman who had gone to the police station to seek bail for culprits.

A reinforcement of fifty two (52) armed military men who stormed the town around 10pm Monday night spared nobody they encountered and unleashed brutal beatings and slaps on even the innocent in retaliation.

As at the time of filing this story three persons had been hospitalized while four remained in police custody.

“It was brutal and very serious; they beat up women like they were fighting with men; we had to sleep in the bush till daybreak and they have vowed to return; we are telling the government to buy guns for us if they can’t protect us, we can do it ourselves”, one of the young men who spoke with Kumasi-based Angel FM said in an interview monitored.

The soldiers also reported “beat up mobile money vendors and looted their cash; they also beat up a kebab seller and chewed all his meat after he fled”, another person said.

The attack affected the voter turnout to the District Assembly Elections in the town as most of them had fled at the time of polls, while others, out of anger had vowed never to vote again in the area.

“The woman could not run fast enough since she had sustained an injury in the accident and she was unfortunately killed by the bull,” said Mr Munanga.

Kakamega East sub county police commander Mr Robert Makau told Nation.Africa that police were called in to rescue the bull from villagers who wanted to slash it to death and share it’s meat.

“The DCIO is handling the investigations. The owner of the bull will appear in court on Thursday to face charges related to negligence in handling the animal,” said Mr Makau.

Mr Munanga said the owner of the bull tried to negotiate with the family of the woman so that they could settle the matter out of court.

“He agreed to meet the burial expenses, but villagers were planning to attack the bull and kill it as dictated by tradition. The bull is supposed to be killed and the meat shared out to be eaten,” said Mr Munanga.

Again, US Court Postpones Socialite Hushpuppi’s Sentencing

 

A United States Central District Court in California has postponed the sentencing of Nigerian fraudster Ramon Abass known as Hushpuppi for the second time.

According to Premium Times report, Judge Otis Wright has fixed September 21 as the new sentencing date for Hushpuppi. “At the request of counsel, the Sentencing is CONTINUED to 9/21/2022 at 1:30 PM before Judge Otis D. Wright II, as to Defendant Ramon Olorunwa Abbas,” the court’s announcement made June 24 read.

Hushpuppi pleaded guilty in April 2021, according to court documents by the United States Department of Justice (DoJ) to the multi-million-dollar fr@ud charges filed against him by the United States government.

A version of Hushpuppi’s plea agreement filed in June outlined his role in a school finance scheme, as well as several other cyber and business email compromise schemes that cumulatively caused more than $24 million in losses. He pleaded guilty to Count Two which is “Conspiracy to Engage in Money Laundering,” an offence that attracts a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment among other punishments including full restitution, his plea agreement with the U.S. government states in part.

Recall, that Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai, the United Arab Emirate (UAE) in June 2020, and subsequently flown to the U.S., Hushpuppi pleaded guilty to the charges in July 2021 and was ordered to remain in custody pending sentencing.

The sentencing hearing was initially moved by Judge Wright from February 14 to July 11 and has now been moved to September 21 at the counsel’s request.

He has been in custody since his arrest in Dubai and rendition to the U. S. in June 2020. He, thereafter entered into a plea bargain agreement with the U.S. government in July 2021, in the hope of getting a lighter punishment. Despite pleading guilty, Hushpuppi will not be exempted from paying restitution.
