Driver granted GH¢10,000 bail for defiling, impregnating girl, 14

 An Accra circuit court has granted bail of GH¢10,000.00 with three sureties to a driver for allegedly defiling and impregnating a 14-year-old girl.


 The court ordered that one of the sureties should be a public servant. 
 Samuel Owoo, 19, pleaded not guilty to the charge and will make his next appearance on November 5.
 

   Detective Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire told the court, presided by Mrs Rita Abrokwa-Doko, that the complainant was the victim’s grandfather and residents of Kwabenya in Accra.
 

He said Owoo’s sister was their neighbour, but he lived at Asamankese in the Eastern Region. 
 

In January, this year, Owoo visited his sister and met the victim on her way to fetch water, and engaged her in a conversation, prosecution said.
 

Chief Insp Atimbire said the driver met the victim the next day and lured her into an uncompleted building and had sex with her.
   

Prosecution said Owoo repeated the act on another day and left for Asamankese.
 

Chief Insp Atimbire said on September 5, this year, the complainant reported the case to the Domestic Violence and Victim’s Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service, when he discovered that the girl was 27 weeks pregnant. – GNA
