Sergeant Opoku Aniagyei, who held brief for Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Agnes Boafo, said the complainant is a resident of Tabora and the victim’s father.

Sergeant Aniagyei said the accused also resides at Flamingo, a suburb in Dansoman, and works with the complainant within that area.

Prosecution said during the month of August, this year, the complainant sent the victim to the house of the accused person to purchase cooking oil.

Prosecution said the complainant also asked the victim to call the accused to come to work and assist him.

According to the prosecutor Anim took advantage of that and lured the victim into his room and had sex with her on three occasion and warned her not to tell anyone else he would beat her.

It was after the complainant had quizzed her that she narrated her ordeal to him and a complaint was lodged with the Police at the Domestic Violence and Victim’s Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service at Dansoman.

The Police issued a medical form to the complainant to seek treatment for the victim and Anim was also picked up. During interrogation, prosecution said the accused denied the offence.
