An Accra Circuit Court has remanded into Police custody a driver's mate for allegedly having sex with a seven-year old girl at Taifa, Accra.
Lucky Attrah 23, charged with defilement, pleaded not guilty.
Attrah is expected to appear before the court again on July 6.
Prosecuting, Chief inspector Kofi Atimbire said the complainant is an apprentice seamstress and a mother of the victim and both reside at Taifa.
Attrah, prosecution said resides at Roman Ridge and he is the nephew of the victim's father.
On December 20, last year, at about 1900 hours Attrah visited the residence of the complainant and found the victim alone in her parents' room.

On June 8, this year, the victim informed her mother about the incident and three days later a report was made to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service.
The victim was issued with a Police medical report form to seek medical treatment and when same was submitted to DOVVSU, Attrah was arrested.
Prosecution said during interrogation, Attrah admitted the offence in his caution statement.
