A 25-year-old Owusu Bempah, also known as Agbey, has faced the wrath of the Apatim Traditional Council for bestiality.

Mr Bempah was humiliated in the Wassa East District after reports were made by another resident, Kwaku Charles that he had been involved in a sexual ‘congress’ with a pregnant dog.

In an interview with Adom News‘ Serwaa Prempeh, a linguist of Apatim, Nana Ampomah Anokye, said he gave an immediate order for the messengers to drag him to the Council.

After a brief interrogation, Mr Bempah conceded to the obscene act which he said happened in the bush.


According to Mr Anokye, having sex with a human being in the farm, forest, riverside or bush is a taboo in the community, let alone an animal.

For this, the Council reached a decision that Mr Bempah be fined GH¢ 500.00 for sacred rituals to purify him from any impending wrath of the gods as well serve as compensation.

That notwithstanding, owner of the dog is also demanding that Mr Bempah takes in the dog as a wife.
