Dr Sulley Ali-Gabass, the doctor who was jailed for defiling a 16 year old boy a few years ago, has revealed that he misses being able to celebrate the Eid with his family every Ramadan.
The doctor, who’s serving a 25 year jail term for the crime, said whilst they are allowed to celebrate the festivities inside, it does not compare to what happens on the outside.
He opened up to a Joy News team who paid him a visit at the Nsawam Medium Security Prisons.
“Back at home I used to organize small parties for my neigbours [both the Christians and muslims] so we enjoy [but] all these are memories that we cherish which we cannot do here,” he told Joy News’ Latif Idris.
“You can’t compare it [celebrating Ramadan at the prison] to celebrating Eid with your nuclear family [and] extended family when you visit each other and all that. So those nostalgic feelings definitely will overwhelm you at a point during the celebrations”.
Dr Sulley Ali-Gabass rose to national prominence a few years ago when a Joy News investigative report led to his arrest for grooming and sodomising a 16 year old boy numerous times.
After his very public trial came to an end, he was found guilty of defilement and sentenced to 25 years in prison.
He’s currently served two years of that term.
