Cape Coast, Jan 06, GNA - A district magistrate court at Cape Coast has remanded Kweku Gyimah, a 26-year old farmer, for defiling a 13-year-old school girl five times. The accused pleaded not guilty and he will reappear on Wednesday, January 18. Chief Inspector Sophia Eva Assan said the victim and her parents as well as the accused stay in the same house at Mankessim. On December 18 last year, Gyimah took advantage of the absence of people in the house and lured the girl into an uncompleted building and defiled her.
The accused repeated the act on December 19, 20, 21 and 22 at the same place and warned the victim not to disclose her ordeal to her father or mother because if she did so he would invoke the powers of Okye River to cause her death.
The girl later fell sick, she could not walk properly and when her father questioned her she narrated her ordeal in the hands of the accused.
The father reported the matter to the police and the accused was arrested.
