Battle over an orphan – Family accuses American Church over illegal adoption

Tension is profoundly mounting between two families over the adoption of a young but beautiful 13 year old orphan named Yaiyere Nagari.

The struggle is between the Krobo Adusei family and the Nigmama family in the northern part of Ghana’s Volta Region.

Members of the Nigmama family have accused the Agape Mission church and the Department of Social Welfare of collaborating to give their daughter to the Krobo Adusei Family for adoption without their knowledge. This was  after  the family  was promised by the church in 1994  that the child was only going to be taken care of at the home till she completed  school and then  returned  to reunite with her  family, according to Johannes Okpanol , spokesperson of the family.
