RESIDENTS OF Abesim near Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region are in a state of shock and disbelief following the bizarre news which broke last Friday about a self-styled evangelist who was caught red-handed having sexual intercourse with a pregnant sheep.
The weird news spread like wildfire and attracted a huge crowd that thronged the Abesim police station to catch a glimpse of the pastor and his sheep ‘wife’.
According to the police, Pastor Gordon Yeboah confessed at the station to having sexual intercourse with the animal, claiming that when he saw the sheep, he experienced an unusual feeling within him, prompting him to have sex with the animal. Pastor Yeboah, 20, a father of a seven-month-old baby, who claims to be the leader of the Holy Spirit Ministry Fellowship church based at Yeboakrom near Abesim, was caught in the act, bonking the poor pregnant sheep at a village called Ampehia near Nkrankrom in the Abesim area on Thursday evening. click below to continue
The very loud bleating of the sheep as a result of the possible excruciating pains it was suffering in the abnormal act did not bother the ‘man of God’ who was bent on unleashing his libido on the animal, until he was finally caught in the act.
The Station Officer of the Abesim Police Station, Chief Inspector Charles Gumenu aka
Chief Mourinho, together with the investigator of the case, Inspector Kofi Aboagye, told us that Pastor Yeboah held the two hind legs of the pregnant sheep which had been tied to a tree, raised them up to his waist level for easy access and had sex with it.
The police said the pregnant sheep was sent to the Veterinary Service for examination, a report of which is yet to be released, whilst investigations are ongoing. The pastor is currently in police custody and would be charged with unnatural carnal knowledge under Section 104 (1) of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29).
The police said on Friday that about 7.00am, two men, Kwadwo Yeboah and Thomas Kumi, both residents of Asikasu village nearNkrankrom, came to the station with Pastor Gordon Yeboah and a female pregnant sheep.
According to the police, Kwadwo Yeboah reported that he saw the pastor having sexual intercourse with the sheep at Ampehia village when he was returning from his farm on Thursday evening around 5.00pm.
The farmer told the police in his statement that he saw the pastor half-naked as he raised the two hind legs of the pregnant sheep, inserted his manhood into the sex organ of the animal and had sexual intercourse with it. The farmer said he initially thought the pastor was attempting to steal the sheep which was tied to a tree behind the house, but after observing what was unfolding, he realised that the pastor was actually having sex with the animal.
He said he went straight to the pastor who was then carried away and tapped him on the back, whereupon the pastor became aware that somebody had been watching him.
According to the farmer, Pastor Yeboah knelt down and begged him not to disclose what he had seen to anybody and that he (Pastor Yeboah) would give him anything he wanted. He said just as the pastor was pleading with him, the owner of the sheep, Thomas Kumi, appeared on the scene and he narrated the whole episode to him while the pastor was still half-naked. The two took the pastor to the chief of Asikasu, Opanin Agya Birii, who said the act was abominable on the land and therefore directed them to send both the pastor and sheep to the police station.
According to the police, Pastor Yeboah confessed at the station to having sexual intercourse with the animal. Chief Inspector Gumenu advised the general public to be wary of self-styled ‘men of God’ who claimed to have gotten supernatural powers to do miracles. He asked the public to report miscreants to the police when they suspect them to be of questionable character.
The Brong Ahafo Regional Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ghana Police Service, Chief Inspector Christopher Tawiah, assured Ghanaians that the police were ever ready to promptly respond to their calls. He called on genuine men of God not to be discouraged by the recent actions of unscrupulous pastors.
