custody for allegedly defiling a nine-year-old girl at James Town, a suburb of
Accra.

charge of defilement.

Prosecuting Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire
informed the court that the matter was under investigations and prayed the
court to remand the accused person.

The court presided over by Mrs Rita Abrokwah
Doko obliged prosecution’s submissions and ordered Ebinim to reappear on
October 24.

The case of prosecution was that, the
complainant is a trader residing at James Town Lighthouse. The victim is a
class two pupil residing with the complainant as a guardian.

Chief Inspector Atimbire said Ebinim is
unemployed and co-tenant of the complainant.

On October 8, this year, at about 03:00 hours,
the victim woke up to have her bath. Ebinim saw her and called her to an
obscure place where he laid a blanket on the floor and had sex with the victim.

Whiles in the act, one Kwadwo, who was then
passing by, saw them and raised an alarm. Ebinim was apprehended and escorted
to the James Town Police station.
