“…he was giving me pressure to come to his place and talk about something; when I got there he asked me to play with his manhood. Initially, I didn’t want to do it but he asked me not to be afraid and promised to give me money and a job…so I played and sucked his manhood till he ejaculated. After ejaculation, he failed to honour his part of the deal and gave me Ghc10 cedis and moved into his Black Nissan Altima with registration number 775-13, with the excuse that he has no money at that particular moment. I told him we did not agree on this amount and so if he hears anything outside, he should not blame me,” he stressed.
