Two persons Charles Yaw Kodua and Hannah Boamah, both 20 years old, who are residents of Anyinofii, in the Ejura -Sekyedumase  Municipality, have been sentenced to seven years in jail each by the Nsuta Circuit Court for their involvement in the rape of a teenager.

They both pleaded guilty.

Prosecuting, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Emmanuel Kyei Sarpong, told the Court presided over by Ms Lydia Osei Marfo that the complainant in this case was a farmer residing at Anyinofii with her 14-year-old daughter who is in Junior High School.

He said on October 14, 2018 at about 8:00pm, Charles Kodua met the victim whilst she was on an errand and with the permission of  Hannah Boamah, a housekeeper, lured the victim to her room and had sexual intercourse with her.

He said the complainant, after waiting for some time without any information about the victim decided to go outside to look for her.

On reaching the dwelling place of Hannah Boamah, she saw Charles Yaw Kodua and the victim emerging from the room of Hannah. The complainant raised an alarm but both Yaw Kodua and the victim bolted.

According to the prosecutor, the complainant lodged a complaint with the Ejura Police and the accused was arrested.

A Police medical form was issued to the complainant and together with the victim, went to Atebubu Government Hospital for medical examination..

The medical report confirmed the sexual assault and the two accused persons were arrested after police investigation.

The accused persons each admitted the offence during their caution statements and were put before the court.
