By The Daily Searchlight

The Goaso Court presided over by Charles Quampah has remanded a 41 year old unemployed, Osei Asibe for attempting to sell his three-year-old son for 150 million cedis for rituals.

Asibe whose plea was not taken would re-appear on April 24.

In the dock with him was a 52-year-old herbalist, Agbenyega Kornyo, who wanted to buy the child. He was also remanded to appear on the same day.

Police Inspector Douglas Awumbilla told the court that Asibe who hails from Asaaman in the Atwima Nwabiagya District travelled to Sankore in the Brong Ahafo and conspired with Kornyo for the deal.

He said on April 2, the accused travelled from Goaso to Abuakwa where the child was residing with the mother and forcibly took the son to Sankore.

The prosecution said the police who had information about the deal, traced Asibe to a room with the child and the herbalist and arrested them.
