A driver named Kenneth Ofosu Mensah, also known as Obolo, has appeared before an Accra Circuit Court on charges of defiling a child between the ages of seven and nine, as determined by bone age. The victim is rumored to occasionally scream in her sleep, “Stop, it hurts me!” She allegedly also reported experiencing vaginal soreness.
Mensah, 31, has entered a no contest plea to the charges of defiling and indecent assault. Mensah has been granted bail by the court presided over by Mrs. Christina Cann in the amount of GHS 100,000 with three sureties, two of whom must be justified. A case management conference has been scheduled for July 26 in relation to the matter.
The complainant, according to prosecuting police chief inspector Simon Terkpor, is a barber who lives in Agbogboloshie. The victim is a second-grade student. The victim, according to Chief Inspector Terkpor, lived at Agbogboloshie with the complainant, her father. Mensah, according to the prosecution, frequently asked the victim to sweep his room because he lived next to the complainant. According to the prosecution, the accused exploited this situation by following the girl into his room, locking the door, and sticking his finger and manhood into her vagina.
Mensah paid the victim money after the act, the prosecution claims. According to the prosecution, Mensah followed the victim into his room in March of this year when she went there to sweep. Prosecuting Police Chief Inspector Simon Terkpor said the complainant was a barber residing at Agbogboloshie. The victim is a primary 2 pupil. Chief Inspector Terkpor said the victim resided with the complainant, her father, at Agbogboloshie.
The Prosecution said accused locked the door, undressed himself and the victim and had sexual intercourse after inserting his finger into her vagina. The prosecutor said in June this year, the victim sometimes could be heard shouting in her sleep, “stop, it is paining me.” “Sometimes too, she would be complaining of vaginal pains when she takes her bath,” the prosecutor said.
The complainant stated that it was the accused who had been sticking his finger in and having sex with her when she was asked if anyone had been having sex with her, according to the prosecutor. The prosecution claimed that when the complainant reported the incident to the Ghana Police Service’s Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit in Accra, he was given a medical form authorizing him to take the victim to a hospital for evaluation and treatment.
The culprit was eventually taken into custody by the police.
