Title: Deeba, a Ghanaian musician remanded for defilement and assault Dated: 21-1-13
Accra Jan. 18, GNA- A Ghanaian musician, Akyeampong Deeba aka Richard Nimoh was on Friday remanded into Police custody by an Accra Circuit Court charged with five counts of defilement and assault.

Deeba also known as Deeba Kofi Akyeampong, Richard Nimoh Deeba and Deeba Kofi had his plea reserved by the court presided over by Mr Ebenezer Osei-Darko.

Deeba who was taken to court to be remanded pending his extradition to the United Kingdom has been accused of defiling an eight-year-old minor and assaulting a six-year-old minor all in the United Kingdom.

Mr Kofi Kwakye, counsel for Deeba, prayed for bail because the Police contended that they were now going through the documentation process in order to extradite Deeba to the United Kingdom to face trial.

The court however turned down the bail application and remanded him to reappear on February 7.

The facts presented by the prosecutor, Assistant Superintendent of Police Cletus K. Abadamalora, were that Deeba resides at Weija in Accra.

Prosecution said in December last year, INTERPOL Accra received a request per an arrest warrant from INTERPOL London to the effect that between 2004 and 2008 while living in the UK, Akyeampong Deeba had a relationship with a Ghanaian woman who had two daughters aged eight and six.

Prosecution said Deeba and his Ghanaian wife subsequently had another two children. The couple however lived separately for the first few months but Deeba visited his wife's home to take care of the children while she (his wife) was for night shifts in the UK.

According to prosecution, this continued till September 2008 when accused retuned to Ghana to pursue his musical career.

Two weeks after Deeba's departure, the eight-year-old minor told her mother that while she was out of the house, Deeba allegedly on several occasions invited her into his bedroom, made her watch pornographic movies, kissed her, applied baby oil on his manhood and had sex with her.

According to prosecution the victim stated further that Deeba also had anal sex with her.

Furthermore, prosecution said the victim said Deeba after each sexual act, put sanitary towel in her panty to avoid the evidence of blood stain and he also hid the bed sheet after the act.

Prosecution said Deeba threatened to beat her if she disclosed the act to anyone.

According to prosecution between June 1 and 4, 2008, Deeba assaulted the younger sister when the six-year-old girl tried to satisfy her inquisitiveness about what was happening to her eight-year-old sister. This led to a cut on the six-year-old girl's head.

Prosecution said a medical examination carried on the eight-year-old minor revealed that he had suffered from extensive damage of her hymen as a result of vaginal penetration.

Deeba when confronted by the victim's mother denied the allegations.

Prosecution said the victim's mother however reported the matter to the Police in UK and a warrant was issued by a Northampton Shire Magistrate for his arrest.

Based on that, prosecution said on January 15, this year, Deeba was arrested at La Palm Royal Beach Hotel and in his caution statement denied the offence..
***Paulina Opoku-Gyimah says: This demon possessed case has left me speechless…. But I’m hoping that the Ghanaian community –at large, will learn from the way the [civilised] British government has hunted down and pursued this member of the human race called Deeba…
Note to mothers, single mothers and all those lonely women out there…..
I’ve been on my own …coming up to nine years, –and I’m truly blessed and never  feel lonely –Amen. I never do, as I have sooo much going on!!!
I guess as a Christian, I learnt a long time ago that when God asks something of us, it’s for the best –and my having my precious, gorgeous, intelligent, Blessed son out of wedlock, –with a man I thought I knew but didn’t really know, –was a massive mistake (not that my son is a mistake –God forbid. He is the right son with the wrong man –but that’s a different story).
The thing is, once you have been married and devoiced or had a child with someone and are now on your own, you have to wise up!!! . You have to work out what went wrong. You have to learn from it.. You have to love yourself or for some, learn to respect yourself.. .
And when you learn to love yourself, the first thing you find out is that –NOT JUST ANY MAN WILL DO!!!!
And when you receive this revelation, you learn to chill out and stop perusing or jumping from one man to the next..  
You also learn that you need to truly know the next man that you allow to come into your life. Yours and your children’s lives are precious –after all!!!
And to truly get to know the man you intend to be in a relationship with -next, you have to spend time with him, get to know his character and if you are anything like me, -find out if he’s a paedophile or not –no???
Years ago I watch a sad true story about a pro football or baseball player –who was sexually abuse as a very young boy by this mother’s new boyfriend. This famous and successful player described how his trusting mother left him and his siblings alone with this monster at night to go to work (yep –very similar to the above case) –and how he was made to keep said abuse quiet –and how the abuse continues to affect him to this day..
This story –may have aired way before I had my son, but as I felt it sooo deep in my soul, I have let the abused man’s and Oprah Winfreys’ words -concerning said episode guard me for life.  
The thing is it’s not just loneliness but desperation and poverty that drive many single mothers into relationships with men they don’t really know!!!
Some of us have struggled for sooo long, that when a man shows us some ‘love’ or money or makes promises to help us or whatever, –most of us leap head first -without truly doing our research!! Do you know this man? Do you know his past or his family’s history or are you tooo lonely, too tired, too desperate to care?? If you one of those women who finds it hard to be on your own, pray, do something, set up a business, join a class –and whilst you are bettering yourself –the ‘right’ man will come –but you’ll still have to get to know him –to make sure he’s the one without your kids…until you are sure he’s not a monster. –And even then, you have to watch him like a hawk (laughter)….
I’m not saying that blah is to blame for what happened to her daughter (God Bless, heal and deliver her) –but this must be read as a cautionary tale!!!  ….We need to get to know people before we move them in –full stop… The thing is… demon possessed paedophiles, –don’t have, ‘I am a paedophile’ written on their foreheads... Plus, there are also those men who hate other men’s children, –and they may mistreat your children, maybe not sexually but physically… *Regardless, –get to know an intended before you introduce them to your children –I beg….
 P.s Please note that Ghanaian investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas was involved in helping INTERPOL Accra and INTERPOL London in making said arrest possible...
