Unemployed,19, abducts, defiles girl, 12

A 19-year-old unemployed man who allegedly took advantage of the absence of the parents of a 12-year-old girl, abducted and defiled her has been arrested.

Samuel Kwaku Kwakye was arrested from his hideout by the father of his victim and handed over to the police.

After investigations, Kwakye was charged with abduction and defilement and arraigned before the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly Court.

The court, presided over by Mr William Boampong, remanded Kwakye in custody to reappear on Friday, January 17, 2013.

Presenting the facts of the case, Chief Inspector Guilliver Tenkorang said the complainant in the case was Matthew Adjei, a mechanic and father of the victim.

Chief Inspector Tenkorang said on December 20, last year, the victim arrived home from school and the father asked of her end of term report.

The victim was unwilling to show the report to her father and told him she did not know where she had placed it.

This, the prosecutor said, infuriated her father, who warned her daughter to find the report or face his wrath.

According to Chief Inspector Tenkorang, the victim who got scared, left home, and Kwakye, who stayed in the same neighbourhood, took advantage of the girl’s situation and lured her into his room and slept with her.

After the act, Kwakye failed to release the girl to go back home and made her spend another night with him.

According to Chief Inspector Tenkorang, after the act, Kwakye warned the girl not to disclose her ordeal to anybody else he would organise a gang to beat her.

However, the prosecutor said, the victim was questioned by her father about where she had been the previous night and mentioned Kwakye as the one who abducted and slept with her.

A report was made to the police and Kwakye was arrested on December 28, 2013 and handed over to the police.
