AN 80-year-old man, Paul Dewornu, has appeared before the Kade Magistrate Court for allegedly defiling an 11-year- old school girl.

His plea was not taken and  was remanded in police custody to appear again on December 5.

Police Inspector D.D.T Wayoe told the court that the victim was a class four pupil  living with her mother at Frafra line, a suburb of Boadua where the accused also lives.

He said on October 13, at about 7:00 p.m., the accused sought permission from the girl’s mother to send her to buy something for him at a near-by store.

Inspector Wayoe said the girl spent more than 25 minutes before returning home.

The mother became suspicious and asked what had kept her so long but the girl and not answer her.

“The mother, however, kept observing her behaviour and saw changes in her walking, did she refused to take her evening meal.”

The girl’s mother suspected something fishy and  examined her private parts where she found out she had been abused sexually.

The girl revealed that she was lured by Dewornu into his bedroom after the errand, defiled and gave her GH¢1.00.

A report was made to the police and Dewornu was arrested.—GNA
