A mechanic has been arraigned before the Accra Circuit Court for allegedly defiling a 13-year old girl at Nungua in the Greater Accra Region.
The accused, Simon Martei gave the victim a soft drink suspected to contain sleep-inducing drug and abducted her into her room for the whole night. The mechanic slept with her several times before allowing her to leave in the morning.
The mother who had sent her on errand in the previous day waited but her daughter did not turn up. She came home in the early morning. After interrogating her, she told the parents what Simon Martei had done to her.
The woman reported the matter to the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit(DOVVSU) division of the police service at Nungua but subsequently forwarded the matter to the Accra Circuit Court.
The Chief Inspector prosecuting the accused, Inspector Kofi Atombire said the 20-year old mechanic admitted to have committed the offence and claiming further that, the damsel is her girl friend.
The Court presided over by her Worship Mrs Christian Cann, granted him bail with three sureties and a bail sum of 60,000 ghana cedis to reappear before the court on 22nd March, 2021 for further adjudication.
