An 18-year-old-boy is in trouble for defiling a six-year-old girl at Glefe-Akamilas in Accra.
Eric Taylor, a school dropout, claimed that he acted under the influence of a local medicine, ‘FOR GIRLS’, given to him by a friend which potency he was testing.
According to the prosecutor, ASP Sarah Acquah, the victim’s mother, Paulina Boaduwaa, noticed some changes in her daughter’s way of walking.
The complainant therefore informed the victim’s grandmother, who came and inspected the victim. It was during the inspection that it was detected that she had been sexually abused.
ASP Acquah stated that after the inspection the victim was questioned and she named the suspect as the one who took her to his room and had sex with her.
According to the victim, the suspect threatened her with death should she disclose the act to anyone.
A complaint was made to the police, who arrested the suspect and interrogated him. It was during the questioning that he confessed to have committed the act under the influence of the local medicine ‘FOR GIRLS’.
Police carried out investigations, charged him with the offence accordingly and arraigned him before court.
