A 24- year-old self-acclaimed Evangelist, Kidisil Sampson, has been sentenced to 18-months imprisonment for false pretence and stealing the property of Mr Mbatim Lala, a farmer at Kpassa in the Nkwanta North district. 

Kidisil pleaded guilty to the crime and was convicted accordingly.

Prosecuting, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Mr Lawrence Wiafi, told the court presided over by Mr. Joseph Evans Annan Okropa, that on June 5, the convict went to the farmer’s (Mbatim Lala) house at Kpassa to evangelize and in the process convinced him of delivering the complainant from some spiritual challenges.

The convict then later requested the motorbike of the complainant to buy something from the town, which he obliged.

ASP Lawrence Wiafi said the convict never returned the motorbike and all effort to trace his whereabouts proved futile.

He said the convict brought the motor bike from Kpassa to Nkwanta town and met an SHS girl of Nkwanta Community Day SHTS and used the same modus operandum to lure the student to the place he was lodging for deliverance.

The Prosecution said, on June 11, the convict was arrested by the Police and after investigations and prosecution was arraigned and convicted.
