Man remanded for having anal sex with boy, 7

An 18-year-old carpenter apprentice, who had anal sex with a seven-year-old boy at Ashongman, in the Greater Accra, Region, has been remanded into police custody by an Accra circuit court.

Kwame Aboagye Dacosta, charged with defilement, pleaded guilty, and the court presided by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, has ordered accused to produce his birth certificate in court, and deferred his sentence to July 10.

The court said if accused fail to produce his certificate, age assessment would be conducted on him at a medical facility.

When the court enquired of his age, Dacosta told the judge that his birth certificate was with his mother’s elder sister at Agogo in the Ashanti Region.

Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire said the complainant, is a seamstress residing at Ashongman with his son, who is the victim in the case.

On June 20, this year, the victim visited his uncle, who also resides within the vicinity, and while the victim was with his uncle, Dacosta went there in the possession of a laptop computer, claiming that he needed a buyer.

The victim’s uncle declined to buy the laptop so Dacosta left.

On his way Dacosta met the victim heading towards his mother’s house and then informed the victim to accompany him to his house at the outskirts of Ashongman to collect something for his uncle.

The victim followed Dacosta to his house, and he lured the victim into his room and had anal sex with.

After the act the victim informed his mother about Dacosta’s conduct, and the complainant and his siblings went to the house of Dacosta and apprehended him and handed him over to the Atomic Police Station.

The matter was transferred to the Madina Domestic Violence and Victim’s Support Unit, where a medical report form was issued to the complainant to seek medical care for the victim.

Prosecution said Dacosta in his caution statement admitted the offence. – GNA
