A young lady who allegedly inserted artificial man’s organ into a co-tenant’s genital after giving her alcoholic drink, has been hauled before an Accra gender-based violence circuit court.

The accused, Queenie Akuffo, who reportedly filmed the act with her Infinix mobile phone, is standing trial for unnatural carnal knowledge.

Before trial judge Mrs. Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, the accused denied the charge and was admitted to bail in the sum of GH¢40,000 with three sureties.

The case has been adjourned until February 12, 2016.

Prosecuting, Detective Inspector Judith B. Asante said the complainant, Comfort Sam, is the complainant and mother of the victim, Janet Amoakwah.

She said Queenie and the victim both reside in the same house at Ablekuma in the Greater Accra Region.

D/Insp. Asante said on January 25, this year, at about 6pm, Queenie sent the victim’s younger sister – a witness in the case – to go and call the victim which she obliged.

Detective Inspector Asante said when the victim arrived, Queenie offered her Vodka beer to drink constantly, indicating that Queenie then sent the victim’s sister to buy her two big bottles of beer which she (Queenie) again offered to the victim.

The prosecutor said Janet as a result, got intoxicated and Queenie lured her into her bedroom.

According to the prosecution, Queenie asked other witnesses around to leave and she locked the door of her bedroom, adding that a             13-year-old witness went to peep through the window of the accused and saw Queenie inserting the artificial ‘thing’ into the victim’s private part.

Detective Inspector Asante said the witness informed the victim’s brother, one Nana Sasu, and he also alerted her mother (the complainant).

They rushed to the aid of the victim and saw her lying naked in the accused person’s bedroom with vomit all over her.

The prosecutor said Janet, who was then unconscious, was rushed to the hospital.

A complaint was lodged at the police station leading to the arrest of Queenie.

A search into her room revealed an empty Vodka drink, Star beer and Orijin bottles.

According to the prosecutor, the artificial male organ was found on top of the accused person’s wardrobe while a video recording of the act was also found on Queenie’s “[email protected] mobile phone.

D/Insp Asante said Queenie, in her caution statement to the police, admitted the offence.
