Alhaji Moro Yahaya, a businessman who has been accused of defiling a 14 year old girl at Ablekuma has appeared before an Accra Circuit Court. Yahaya charged with defilement has pleaded not guilty.
The court presided over by Mrs Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye has admitted Yahaya to bail in the sum of GH¢70,000.00 with two sureties who should be gainfully employed.
This was after his counsel Mr Richard Kojo Abban had prayed the court to admit his client to bail. Yahaya is to reappear on October 10.
Prosecuting Inspector Judith B. Asante narrated that the complainant, Mr Ibrahim Iddrisu is the father of the victim. Mr Iddrisu and Yahaya are neighbours who share a fence wall at Borkoborkor in Ablekuma.
On September 10 this year, the complainant’s wife detected that the victim was demonstrating signs of pains whilst walking. When the victim was questioned, she mentioned the name of the accused as the one who had sex with her in his room.
Prosecution said a report was therefore made at the Anyaa Police Station and a medical form was issued to the complainant to seek medical care for the victim.
When Yahaya was arrested by the Police he denied the offence.
