This story will, of course, be completely ignored by the enemedia in the West. If it were a rabbi or a Christian minister, there would be screaming international headlines. But the media considers its chief responsibility to be always to whitewash Islam. And this story is all about Islam: child marriage is sanctioned in Islam. Muhammad, “the prophet of Islam,” married his favorite wife at the age of six. Under Islam, Muhammad is “the perfect example.”
Six persons have been put before an Accra Circuit Court for forcing a 12-year old girl into marriage at Abeka Zongo, Accra.
The victim’s parents, together with the supposed husband and his parents as well as an Abeka Imam, who witnessed the marriage ceremony have been arraigned.
The 12-year-old victim was married to a 26-year old man known as Prince Hakeem Sharif Dekeeney.
The accused persons are Mohammed Kamal Yusif, a 53-year-old driver and Rufkatu Abdallah, a 49-year old trader, Sherif Idris, Adizatu Alhassan, Prince Hakeem Sharif Dekeeney, and Sheikh Hidir Idris Adams, the Imam
Three other accomplices namely Sheikh Hidir Adams, Sheikh Amin Osuman and Sheikh Dr. Bashir Adams, are said to be at large.
They have been variously charged with conspiracy to commit crime, abetment of crime and forced marriage.
They have pleaded not guilty to the various charges and the court presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku has admitted them to bail in the sum of GH¢10,000 with one surety each to reappear on October 8….
Meanwhile, the six accused persons have admitted the offence, but Prince Sharif Dekeeney told the Police that he had paid bride price to Mohammed Kamal Yusif and Rufkatu Abdallah.
Investigations revealed that the marriage ceremony was graced by Sheikh Abass Saleh, the Abeka Imam.
