Mallam Wahab Seidu, a resident of Jericho, an Ashaiman suburb and a popular spiritualist in the area reportedly raped a 17-year-old girl and shaved her private parts.
According to report, the victim had confided in one of the Mallam's wife who happened to be her friend about her problems. The woman perhaps disclosed the issue to her husband who decide to use the information to his advantage.
Mallam Wahab met the victim in the area and immediately started mentioning her problems to her one after the other and told her that her relationship disappointments was
the result of a spiritual marriage.
The victim was surprised and believed Mallam Wahab to be a powerful spiritualist, adding that the Mallam, after stating the problems asked her to bring her pubic hair, vaginal fluid, sperms, cotton, cosmetic powder and an amount of GH¢100, so he would prepare a spiritual concoction for some rituals to solve her problems.
The victim, a Senior High School leaver who was desperate to have a man, had managed to produce some of the items except the sperms and pubic hair, which Mallam Wahab assured her of getting.
He allegedly lured the victim to a guest house where he had sexual intercourse with her, in the alleged bid to get the sperm and vaginal fluid to perform the ritual, which would help her get a husband. After the sexual act, the victim asked the Mallam about solutions to her family problems, and the Mallam scheduled another meeting at the same guest house with a new set of items to resolve the family problems.
Mallam Wahab was said to have met the victim again at the guest house where he had sexual intercourse with her after shaving her private parts.
