Drummer in court over alleged sexual abuse

A 34-year-old drummer who is alleged to have subjected a seven-year-old girl to sexual abuse at Chorkor in Accra, has appeared before an Accra circuit court.

Asante is expected to reappear on March 16.

Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Judith B. Asante said the complainant is a trader and mother of the victim and Asante resides in the same vicinity at Chorkor, Accra.

The Chief Inspector said Asante and the victim’s father are good friends. On March 2, this year, at about 7pm, Asante went to the complainant’s house and met the victim playing with her elder brother.

Chief Inspector said the accused person took off his trousers, and sexually assaulted the victim.

Afterward, prosecution said, the victim’s elder brother saw her sister wearing her pant , whilst Asante was standing by and informed the complainant who also quizzed the accused person.

Asante, prosecution said, admitted the offence and the matter was reported to the police at Chorkor.
