Sunyani, Feb. 14, GNA - A circuit court in Sunyani on Monday remanded Kweku Amoah, a 22-year-old unemployed into prison custody for defiling a 15-year-old junior secondary school pupil at Odumase, a suburb of Sunyani.
He pleaded not guilty and would re-appear on February 27, 2006. Prosecuting, Police Chief Inspector E. T. Boison told the court presided over by Mr Kofi Debrah that the victim lived with her father at Agyei Ano South, near Sunyani, whilst the accused resided at Odumase. He said at about 2000 hours on January 1, this year, the accused met the victim at the Odumase lorry park and offered to accompany her to wherever she was going.
On the way, Chief Inspector Boison said, Amoah bought a bottle of soft drink for her and proposed love to her but the victim rejected his advance.
