Supt Erzuah said Nai took advantage and forcibly had sex with her.

The court heard that the victim threatened to raise an alarm if the accused continued to harass her and make more sexual advances, and the accused sensing danger opened the door and the complainant left the room..

Supt. Erzuah told the court that after a week, Nai sent the victim GHc 50.00 so that she would visit him again for sex, but the victim narrated her ordeal to her husband and a report was made to the Enchi police.
