A Kumasi High Court has remanded two young men into prison custody for allegedly gang raping a three-year-old girl.

Desmond Addai and Osei Kwadwo believed to be in their early 20s denied the offence and would re-appear on Thursday, February 10.

Mr Emmanuel Kwadwo Otoo-Boison, a State Attorney told the court presided over by Mr Justice R.C. Azumah that the complainant is the mother of the victim.

The mother and the victim live in the same neighbourhood with Addai and Osei at Feyiase in the Bosomtwe District.

On February 9, last year, the victim got missing for about three-and-a-half hours and when she was finally found, her whole body had been smeared with faeces and blood oozing out of the vagina.

When asked what happened to her, she said Addai invited her to buy him a sachet of water and later took her to a plantain farm where together with another person defiled her.

A report was therefore made to the police and Addai was arrested.

During interrogation, he mentioned Osei as the other person.

The prosecution said a medical report signed by doctors, who treated the victim, confirmed that her hymen had been torn.
