Man in court for allegedly defiling 6-year-old girl

By on

A 22-year-old Nigerian man has been hauled before the Accra Circuit Court for allegedly defiling a six-year-old girl at Lomnava in Accra.

It is the case of the prosecution that Vitalis Obiajuru had anal sex with the girl and also inserted his fingers into her vagina in April this year.

The accused pleaded not guilty to two counts of defilement and indecent assault and was granted bail in the sum of GH¢20,000 with three sureties, two of which must be Ghanaians.

The court, presided over by Rita Abrokwah Doko, also ordered him to deposit his passport with the court registry.

Hearing continues on June 3, 2019.

Alleged incident

Presenting the prosecution’s case, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Agnes Boafo said “Obiajuru is a barber who lives in the same neighbourhood with the girl and her mother.

She said in April this year, Obiajuru lured the girl who was playing behind a shop into his shop.

“Obiajuru took off the girl’s pants and forcibly had anal sex with her. After satisfying himself, he gave the girl GH¢1 to make her to keep quiet over the matter,” the prosecutor said.

Later in the month, DSP Boafo further stated, Obiajuru saw the girl playing with her siblings and lured her into his shop again.

“This time round, he inserted his fingers into the girl’s vagina and after satisfying himself he again gave her GH¢1,” she said.

According to the prosecutor, the girl disclosed her ordeal to her siblings who in turn informed their mother.

On April 28, this year the girl’s mother lodged a complaint with the police and Obiajuru was arrested.
