Farmer in court for defiling girl, 13
Akim Oda (E/R), Dec. 10, GNA – Ebenezer Yankson, a farmer, who allegedly defiled a 13-year-old pupil at a village near Akim Wenchi in the Eastern Region, has been admitted to GHc3, 000 bail with one surety, by the Akim Swedru Circuit Court.
The 18-year-old farmer denied knowledge of the offence and would reappear on December 14.
Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Adelaide Appiakorang told the court that the complainant is the father of the victim and lives at a village called Kwabena Oduro with the accused person.
The prosecutor said the court, presided over by Mr. Yaw Attah Sampong, heard that on August 5, this year around 1930 hours the girl left home to watch video in a nearby house when she met Yankson on the way.
Chief Inspector Appiakorang said Yankson lured her to a house where the occupants had gone to funeral and forcibly had sex with the girl on the veranda, but when she could no longer contain the pain, she screamed for help.
According to the prosecutor, the screaming attracted Yankson's wife, a witness in the case, adding that the accused person's wife, who could not stand watching the horrible act, attacked her husband and bit his left ear.
Inspector Appiakorang said the victim reported the ordeal to her parents and subsequently a report was made to the Police.
