Captain of Ghana’s national team, the Black star, Asamoah Gyan has lost a long running rape, sodomy, and extortion case involving the state and 4 accused persons.
According the Kasapafmonline.com, the Circuit court in Accra presided over by Her Honour Afia Agbanu Kumador has upheld a submission of no case filed by lawyers of Sarah Kwablah and three others against Asamoah Gyan, the Black stars captain.
The Black Stars Captain dragged the four to court for conspiracy and extortion after Ms Kwablah had alleged he raped her.
But in court today Wednesday March 20,2019 the court said the prosecution had not been able to prove that a prima facie case has been established against the accused persons.
Ms Sarah Kwablah was sued together with Osarfo Anthony (Arts/Entertainment Writer), Chris Handler (Blogger) and Ekow Micah (Musician) and were arrested, charged with conspiracy to extort money and arraigned before court.
Background Of Case
Daily Guide newspaper, published a story in June, 2015, which alleged that Sarah Kwablah, a 21-year-old student, wants to blackmail Asamoah Gyan with a sex video involving the two parties. The story caught national attention and was met with mixed beliefs and fraught with several conspiracy theories.
Sarah Kwablah’s side of the story, was however not captured in the publication. According to the paper, though they reached out to her via SMS, she failed to respond at the time of going to press.
Just after the publication, Sarah Kwablah approached Osarfo Anthony – then a writer for online media GHbase.com and gave her side of the story, which had it that, Asamoah Gyan raped and sodomized her which was caught on a CCTV in her house, but Daily Guide twisted the narrative of the story as “consensual sex” (video) to favour Gyan.
Sarah furnished Osarfo with all WhatsApp chats between Gyan and her, still pictures of her bloody naked body after the rape and sodomy she sent to Gyan – which alarmed Gyan, making him apologize for what he did, and Gyan’s WhatsApp voice notes in which he can be heard loud and clear, pleading with the girl not to let anyone see or know about what happened between them.
The site (GHbase.com) investigated and published more revelations on the alleged rape and sodomy story.
Asamoah Gyan’s team contacted the site’s Editor, Chris Handler and Osarfo, and pleaded with them to stop the publication.
The same Gyans, later, turned around to accuse Osarfo and 3 others, of conspiring to extort money from Gyan with their publications. Osarfo Anthony, Chris Handler, Sarah Kwablah, and Ekow Micah, were arrested, charged with conspiracy to extort money and arraigned before court.
