By Philip Koroma (02/04/17)
A sexual predator who is alleged to have deflowered a nine year old girl in Panguma has recently appeared in a jam-packed Kenema court.
Reports say the man identified as Momoh Kokowah residing in Panguma, Lower Bambara chiefdom in Kenema district has made his first appearance before Magistrate Samuel Kamara for allegedly abusing the teenager girl. (Pictured: Police Chief in Sierra Leone Francis Munu making sure everyone is safe).
The accused, according to court reports, allegedly called the victimised 9-year-old sexual and gave her Le2,000.00 (two thousand Leones) after sexually abusing her.
Sources say he further threatened to kill the 9-year-old-girl should she tell anyone about what happened between them.
But the brave girl told her parents who in turn alerted the police and the sexual predator was arrested. A medical examination was conducted proving that the accused sexually abused the young girl.
He was arraigned in court in Kenema and has since been remanded in custody. The sexual predator Momoh Kokowah also appeared in court on Tuesday 21st March 2017.
The no nonsense Magistrate Samuel Kamara has vowed in court to minimise the abuse of young girls in the Kenema district and he promised the accused to expect a heavy sentence.
However, family members of the accused are reportedly rallying round the victim's father to compromise the matter by appealing to have the case settled out of court. Investigations continue.
