Accra, Oct. 2, GNA – An Accra Circuit Court on
Tuesday acquitted and discharged Prince Samuel Adzorkatsi, a 47-year-old
driver, accused of defiling an 11-year-old girl at Nungua.

Adzorkatsi was found not guilty on a charge of
defilement by the court after an eight-month trial.

The court, presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong
Adjin-Doku, said there were inconsistencies in the evidence adduced and
discrepancies of the dates on which the incident took place; noting that the
story of the victim remained a bizarre and full of disbeliefs.

Adzorkatsi could not hide his excitement
hence, as soon as the court acquitted him, he remarked; “Ah My Lord! God bless
you. Thank you very much”.

Prosecuting Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire
narrated earlier that the complainant is the mother of the victim. The
complainant and victim reside at Tsuibleoo, Teshie.

Adzorkatsi was a taxi driver residing at
Nungua. On February 18, this year, the victim was sent by the complainant to go
to her father at Osu to collect some money.

Prosecution said the victim did not return
home and two days later a report was made to the Police. On February 22, the
victim returned home and the complainant took her to the Osu Police Station.

At the station, prosecution said the victim,
during interrogation, mentioned Azorkatsi as the one she was staying with and
that Azorkatsi had sex with her.

A Police medical report was issued to the
complainant to seek medical care for the victim.

Later Azorkatsi was arrested by the Domestic
Violence and Victim’s Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service.
