Residents of Pelungu in the Nabdam District of the Upper East Region are still in shock after news of a man sodomizing a mentally unstable boy in a bush hit the area.
The man has been identified as George Mbabon, a leading member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Nabdam Constituency.
Mbabon did not object to the allegation leveled against him when he appeared before his family members, nor that of the boy’s at the Pelungu chief’s palace, the Daily Guide newspaper reports.
The chief of the Pelungu Traditional Area, Naba Sierig Sobil IV, has referred the case to the Nangodi police to handle.
Even though he is yet to state why he committed the act, some residents believe that he might have been pushed into the act by an evil spirit, just to tarnish his image as a politician.
An arrangement had been made for the victim to receive medical attention at the Upper East Regional Hospital in Bolgatanga.
