He was arraigned before a Wa Magistrate’s Court and remanded into police custody for further investigations to be conducted into the case.
Osei Bonsu chased the Primary Five pupil to the school premises and despite attempts by people around to stop him, he went ahead and sexually assaulted her.
According to Deputy Upper West Regional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Shayibu Gariba, the victim, and a male friend were on their way to attend to nature’s call when they encountered the policeman.
But when he asked the girl and boy where they were going, the boy, out of fear took to his heels, leaving her behind.
ACP Gariba said, Constable Osei Bonsu attacked the girl and she ran to a school nearby, but he pursued.
He said Constable Osei Bonsu caught the girl and demanded to have sex with her, because he thought the boy was going to do same with her.
ACP Gariba said a securityman and some people around tried to stop the policeman from having sex with the victim, but he brushed them aside and forcibly had sex with her.
A report was made to the police and the girl was taken to the Wa Government Hospital where a medical examination proved that she had been defiled.
