The Kumasi Circuit Court has sentenced a commercial sex worker to 5 years imprisonment with hard labor for slashing a colleague’s private parts with a blade.
The Court presided over by Her Honour, Priscilla Dapaah Mireku, sentenced one Bella Yabuku a 28-year-old Nigerian for causing harm to her colleague sex worker, Ruth Korn.
Bella Yakubu pleaded guilty to inflicting blade wounds on the victim.
According to the prosecution, the incident occurred on 19th July 2022 at Dichemso Diamond Hotel, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
Bella is said to be the godmother of the prostitutes at Dichemso who normally brings girls from Nigeria with the idea of getting them greener pastures in Ghana that normally turns out to be prostitution who attacked the victim for reportedly taking well-known own boyfriend in Dichemso ‘Luda’, suffered razor wounds on her face, thighs, and vagina during an attack with one commercial sex worker and two boys of Dichemso Old Town in Kumasi who are on the run.
Police say the suspect, was arrested by the Airport Police, and efforts are being made to apprehend her three (3) escaped co-conspirators.
The victim, Ruth alias “Cherish,” was treated at the Manhyia Government Hospital but she was later referred to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Emergency Unit (KATH) before being released, but she is still recovering from her injuries.
The prosecutor reported that Bella had earlier warned Ruth that she would “design her face with a razor and cut off her vagina then put pepper in her vagina then break her phone before sending her to Nigeria” if she does not stop chasing his boyfriend ‘Luda’ who has been her topmost customer.
