Six men have been arrested at Ehi in the Ketu North District of the Volta Region, for allegedly gang raping a 15-year-old Junior High School pupil.
They were said to have dragged the girl into a classroom, took turns to defile her and filmed the sex acts with a cell phone.
The suspects, who were picked up hours after the incident, are Julius Donkor, alias Kapaya, 21; Paul Agumazor, alias Paulzor, 22, and Joshua Kpeli, alias Stigma, 21.
The rest are Innocent Alevi, alias Clerk, 19; Francis Sabla alias China, 19 and Miwoekpor Agbenyagah, alias Agbey, 20.
The Dzodze Police District Commander, ASP Mr Ziggah Atsu, who confirmed these to the Ghanaian Times at Dzodze yesterday, said that the incident at about 11pm on Saturday.
According to him, the gangsters trailed the girl who was returning home from a funeral at the suburb of Higa, and at one stage, Kpeli deviously offered to escort her home since it was late in the night and the unsuspecting girl accepted his offer.
Unknown to the girl, Kpeli had already signaled the other suspects to follow them.
ASP Atsu said that on reaching the Kaledzi ‘C’ School, the suspects dragged the helpless girl into one of the classrooms and forced her to lie in a supine position on one of the desk before they took turns to have sex with her.
While the girl was going through the ordeal, the police commander said that Agumazor at one stage used his cellular phone to record the defilement acts.
Meanwhile, Kpeli kept watch over the school park to alert the other suspects in case someone was passing by.
After satisfying themselves, the suspect warned the girl never to disclose what they did to her to anyone or else she would suffer a curse from the ‘alorkpli’ shrine.
The victim who was groaning, however, managed to gather courage to go to the Ehi Police Station to make a report, after which she was accompanied by the police to the St. Anthony Hospital at Dzodze where she was treated and discharged.
ASP Atsu said that the suspects who were later arrested admitted having sex with the girl in the caution statements, with five of them blaming Kpeli as the one who initiated the idea.
The video footing of the sex acts is in the possession of the police, he added.
Mr. Atsu said that the suspects who were charged with defilement were due to appear before an Aflao Circuit Court.
